The conference brought delegates from around the Pacific, NZ, Australia, US, and the UK, to share and exchange perspectives on their own Blue Light experience - the worldwide initiative aimed at empowering and developing youth through leadership and life skills’ programs. The Cook Islands delegation, led by Insp. Strickland and accompanied by Constable Teaukura Hosking and Programme Manager Tuaine Papatua, impressed the audience with a country presentation that highlighted the culture as well as the successful community projects undertaken since the Blue Light relaunching last year. The Queenstown conference coincides with the 35th anniversary of the institution’s work in NZ, helping young people in strengthening strategies for crime prevention and empowerment.
