Young people from the Ring Macilroy, Warrenpoint area recently enjoyed a very successful Youth Engagement Programme in their local Park. YEP1The event was organised by the Newry, Mourne and Down Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) in conjunction with Warrenpoint Collective. A number of agencies such as the PSNI, the Education Authority and the Warrenpoint Youth Forum were also in attendance. The aim of the Youth Engagement Programme is to encourage young people from the area to engage in outdoor activities increasing their physical activity and to improve relationships with their local Neighbourhood Policing Team. Participants were spoilt for choice with a range of activities on officer such as Cage Football and Laser Tag. Officers from the PSNI brought along their R32 Golf which attracted a lot of attention and they also provided the young people with excellent advice on road safety. The Magnet Centre very kindly also came along to give advice and information on the dangers of drugs and alcohol. The Programme will continue on Friday 18th March from 7pm to 9pm.
