Port Alberni RCMP are taking it to the courts to foster relationships with youth.

On March 2, 2022 members of Port Alberni RCMP took time to attend the city’s Nights Alive program, and build relationships with youth from the valley.

The Nights Alive program is sponsored by the City of Port Alberni, and focuses on providing a safe space for youth from 12-18 to enjoy recreational activities at the Gyro Centre.

Several officers attended this Wednesday’s drop-in and found their skills on the basketball court left much to be desired. Their attempts at the pool table were not much better.

The RCMP believes that long-term prevention of youth crime and victimization can only be accomplished in partnership with the community. The RCMP works closely with local organizations and social services so that young people who come into contact with the police, start with a positive interaction, in order to foster future relationships Said Constable Richard Johns, Media Relations Officer for Port Alberni RCMP.

As officers find time in their workday, they will continue to find time for events such as Nights Alive, and other activities within the community.
