"Their work is of great value to the police as they work with some of our up and coming offenders trying to deflect them from committing further crime and disengaging from school."
Macquarie Fields Police Station would like to take this opportunity to express their gratitude to the work that Melissa and Bruce [South West Youth Services case workers] do. Melissa and Bruce are a great asset to the Community. They have assisted Macquarie Fields Police by case working young people who have committed crime or who are disengaging with school. There are not many agencies who will work with young people from the age of 8 years however, SWYS have managed to engage with many of these students.
Melissa and Bruce work very close with the Youth Liaison Officers of the Macquarie Fields LAC. They assist with programs working with difficult students recommended by various primary and high schools. Melissa and Bruce have the skill to build good relationships with the young people they work with. We would find it very difficult to find an agency that would work so close with the Macquarie Fields LAC. Their work is of great value to the police as they work with some of our up and coming offenders trying to deflect them from committing further crime and disengaging from school.
