Kings Cross Local Area Command

(Community Recognition Statement,  11 September 2014, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament) 

I congratulate the Kings Cross police on their proactive work in building positive relationships with young people in the electorate of Sydney. The Kings Cross Local Area Command is running a touch football training program at Plunkett Street Public School in Woolloomooloo and will take the team to participate in a touch football competition—a first for the school. Twenty Plunkett Street Public School students joined police officers on a one-day excursion to the Stanwell Tops Conference Centre. They took part in group activities, building skills and confidence in an outdoor environment very different from the inner city they are used to. Police plan an overnight camp for this group later in 2014. Kings Cross Local Area Command is also running an eight-week personal safety workshop series with older students from East Sydney High School at the Woolloomooloo PCYC. I congratulate the Local Area Commander, Michael Fitzgerald, and his team on these initiatives that will build positive relationships between young people and police and support the great work of our local schools.
