Girls In Charge

Mr GRIMLEY (Western Victoria) (10:11): I would like to rise to commend one of Victoria’s finest police members, Detective Senior Constable Kylie Roberts, on her and her team’s incredible initiative and time dedicated to the Girls in Charge program. This program runs for nine weeks out at Surf Coast Secondary College, where girls can learn a skill, in this case netball umpiring, and further develop and strengthen relationships with local police. In speaking to Kylie about this wonderful program she said, and I quote: … the girls themselves told us their confidence grew, they learnt how to have a better mind-set and they felt they could do anything if they tried. This resulted in wonderful trust and great relationships formed with the police involved. This was a project I assisted funding with my pollie pay rise, and I feel very privileged to be able to help getting projects like this off the ground.
