Date of Release:  Monday, October 1, 2014

(Thunder Bay, ON)  On Monday, October 6, 2014, Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service members will be present in Sandy Lake First Nation for the introduction of the newly funded program, NAPS Community Mobilization Youth Officer. 

The Community Mobilization Youth Officer position is a 2014-2015 funded special project and will be held by Constable Steve Sherlock.  The Community Mobilization Youth Officer will begin to address the data driven occurrences that bring youth at risk and law involved youth a place to commence the program. 

NAPS embraces the ideology of the importance of young people and their part in our future. Youth comprise a particularly vulnerable population especially in rural and remote areas however; they are also noted to be more resilient and able to overcome.  The creation of this program officer would begin to alleviate some of the overtasking of NAPS front-line officers, reinforce current partnerships such as NAN Legal Services, the John Howard Society and Youth Probation & Parole, and build new relationships that would benefit all but most especially youth in the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation communities. 

Sandy Lake First Nation is approximately 600 km northwest of Thunder Bay.

NAPS serves 34 communities across the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation territory which encompasses nearly 2/3 of the Province of Ontario:  Thunder Bay to Hudson's Bay; and, Manitoba to Quebec.
