Photo: NICOLA WILLIAMS By NICOLA WILLIAMS Support people are wanted for young people being inter- viewed by police. District youth aid co- ordinator Dexter Traill says he is looking for new members for the police nominated persons list. When young people are interviewed and there is no one available from their fam- ily to support them for one reason or another that's when we need socially conscious good citizens to support them when they are in need.'' The young person can nomi- nate a family member, friend or teacher, but if no one is available the police need a pool of people to call on. The role was formed in 1989 when legislation under the Children and Young Person and Families Act made nomi- nated persons a requirement to ensure young people are treated fairly. A short training course will be held and people can advise police of when they are avail- able to be called upon. Nominated people are called upon about once or twice a month. It's mentally demanding so we are looking for responsible people,'' Mr Traill says. You will be hearing some very serious matters so you will have to understand the privacy around that.'' Mr Traill says it's a re- warding role. They like the satisfaction of helping and doing a civil duty, they feel a sense of social responsibility.'' Mr Traill says those brought to police attention aren't all bad people -- they often just make a bad choice. Some of them are quite scared about the whole pro- cess so we need people to con- nect with them.'' Mr Traill also says it provides plenty of variety. They meet some real characters.'' Contact Mr Traill on 027-206-5887 or firstname.lastname@example.org by February 28. IN BRIEF Order of Merit Selfless service was recognised when Kit Wong was made a member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the New Year Honours list. The Cockle Bay resident received the honour for services to business and the community after taking an integral role in a number of organisations which help immigrants since 1987. An article published on Friday incorrectly stated he was awarded a Queen's Service Medal. The New Zealand Order of Merit is a higher award for achievement or service to the community, usually in a national role. Help offered Flood-ravaged Brisbane has an offer of help from mayor Len Brown. Mr Brown has offered any assistance Auckland can provide the sister city as it copes with effects of the deluge in southeast Queensland. Mr Brown sent a message of support to Brisbane mayor Campbell Newman last week. Aucklanders are among 15 New Zealanders helping with the clean-up efforts in the flood-ravaged state. The Auckland Council trains and provides equipment to volunteer Civil Defence response teams.
