The Blue Light™ Activity Units are established in rural and remote areas where there’s no PCYC. Each Unit is managed by local Police Officers who organise recreational events and activities for youth in the local community.
These events range from discos, movie nights, sports day, pool parties and many more!
All Blue Light events provide a safe, supervised environment where young people can enjoy themselves free of drugs, alcohol, smoking and anti-social behaviour.
In partnership with the Western Australia Police Force, PCYC currently operates 30 Blue Light™ Youth Activity units throughout Western Australia reaching thousands of young people in locations each year.
These activities give young people the opportunity to participate in meaningful and enjoyable activities, as well as gain positive experiences interacting with the local police.
Areas with regular Blue Light and youth engagement activities have noted the positive effect that it has on the community as well as a reduction in anti-social behaviour. This positive reaction allows for relationships between police, young people and the wider community to grow and develop.
Blue Light™ Youth Activity Units can be in the following locations:
