PICTURED are officers of Rural East Neighbourhood Policing Team with teenagers who took part in the Tandragee and Poyntzpass Young Women’s Programme.

The programme ran for one week in partnership with PSNI and SELB Youth Service and was organised by local lady Cathy Donnelly. Twenty young women took part in the project which included discussion about crime and antisocial behaviour, how young people can stay safe and the help and assistance that police can provide.

The teenagers also enjoyed a two day residential at Tollymore Outdoor Centre. The project was funded through Future Foundations PEACE III.
