PCYC Whitsundays branch manager shares his story

PCYC Queensland celebrates Sergeant Billy Li’s story, who before his current role as PCYC Whitsundays branch manager was a Cultural Advisory Officer with the Queensland Police Service (QPS) Cultural Engagement Unit.

Billy’s story has recently been shared by the QPS, see Billy’s story here.

As a Cultural Advisory Officer Working in policy and program development, the Cultural Engagement Unit links the QPS with many multicultural and Indigenous bodies in Australia to provide reviews, advice, consultation and education to the QPS and the public.

Billy said he loved the challenges and rewards of his career whilst he was part of the Cultural Engagement Unit saying it was very unique, very special and very diverse and nothing like any other job in the QPS.

During his time with the Cultural Engagement Unit, Billy travelled extensively around the state to consult with communities and deliver education and awareness programs. Sergeant Li even earned international recognition and was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the Korean National Police Agency for his work on a fraud case involving a Korean national.

Now based in the Whitsundays, Billy loves engaging with the local community.

“I got lucky getting the opportunity to come to the Whitsundays. It is paradise and there is nowhere else in the world like this and the people have been so friendly,” said Billy.

“PCYC Whitsundays provides great programs, activities and services, and I am really enjoying the opportunity to work in this amazing local community,” he said.
