The Layou Police Youth Club (PYC) is ten (10) years old. On Sunday 29th January 2023, a ceremony was held at the Layou Police Station to commemorate the milestone under the theme “Building Youths for a Brighter Tomorrow.”
Several dignitaries were on hand to witness the event, including, the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Colin John.
In his remarks to the audience, the Commissioner of Police commended the leadership of National Coordinator of Police Youth Clubs Sergeant (Sgt) Stephen Billy, and the Layou Police Youth Club on its achievement.
In his closing remarks, the Commissioner told the youths, “Your boundaries are set by you. Your ability to live and work in any country depends on your qualifications and skills. Once you are qualified, you can work in Israel, Africa, or anywhere in the world.”
He encouraged the youths to have high self-esteem because the value they place on themselves, is the same value other people would place on them.
Ten (10) food baskets were also distributed to ten members of the club sponsored by the National Lotteries Authority, Eastern Caribbean Group of Companies (ECGC), and Nature Care Limited.
