Latest update: School Based Police Constable Program (SBCP)
At the last CE/COGSO meeting 5 June, we requested continuity of the current program with Constables in Term 3 and ongoing.
We also provided this request to the Minister’s Education Advisor.
Based on strong feedback from the Chairs of School Representative Bodies (SRB) of Darwin and Top End Middle/Senior/Colleges, we have written to the Chief Minister, including the Police and Education Ministers to request:
- The continuation of the current eight (8) Police Constables in schools from day 1, term 3 and ongoing.
- The addition of the promised seven (7) additional Police Constables for term 3 to be in place from day 1, term 3.
- The seven (7) additional positions to incorporate two (2) positions returning to Taminmin and Palmerston Colleges. Due to the high number of year 7-10 enrolments both of these Colleges had two Police Constables, however, to date only one (1) Constable has been returned during term 2.
