PCYC Logan wins Safe City Award
PCYC Logan is proud to be amongst the winners at the Logan City Council’s 2019 Safe City Awards.
Awarded to Acting Sergeant Cherie McLean for her work at PCYC Logan engaging high-risk offenders into youth and community diversionary programs, A/Sgt McLean works in partnership with other community organisations and government agencies to achieve outstanding results.
“I was surprised to receive the nomination, but very appreciative to be recognised for the great work the team at PCYC Logan does to support high risk youth offenders to refer them to positive diversionary programs,” said Acting Sergeant McLean.
“Many participants have gained their driver’s licence through our Braking the Cycle Program, re-engaged with education and have also obtained employment which is incredibly positive,” she said.
PCYC Queensland Regional Supervisor Senior Sergeant Jason Hopgood acknowledged Acting Sergeant McLean’s award, especially against an outstanding field of nominees including other police officers from across the Logan District.
“We are very proud of Acting Sergeant McLean and the whole team at PCYC Logan for the work they do to support their community as well as local police. She is very humble about the achievement however her impact is significant,” said Senior Sergeant Hopgood.
PCYC Braking the Cycle and Safer Communities Coordinator, Codie Smith, was also nominated under the Safe City Awards’ Not-for-profit category.
