"Police engaging with youth projects is key to us all moving forward as a community....We felt honoured to be invited to 'challenge' the youth to a game....what is important is not who wins but instead it is that everyone enjoys themselves, that we all work together as a team and that those attending learn to apply themselves, learn skills, learn to work together as part of a team and most of all have fun!”"
