The Blue EDGE programme was developed under the newly established Blue Light Cook Islands initiative.
More than two dozen youngsters took part in the special graduation event organised by the Cook Islands Police Service in co-operation with the Aronga Mana and community in Puaikura, the first location of the new training models to be launched.
The young ones were presented with a certificate of completion for the eight-week course of training and instruction with police personnel and a support team of trainers and advisors, who are also part of the Blue Light Cook Islands Executive.
Several awards were also provided for distinction in the course.
Top overall awards went to trainees:- Tylani Ataera and Greig Rongokea; Best of Drill Awards to Anthony Enoka and Revan Tuaputa; Best of Search and Rescue Awards to Ngatokorua Area and Oscar Wichman; Most Improved Award to Beniamina Kite; Most Commitment Award to Vivian Kimiora; and Most Promising Future Leader Award to Revan Tuaputa. Congratulations to you all for taking part in Blue EDGE Puaikura.
Watch out for upcoming programmes in 2019! - CIPS
