The Police Department is currently hosting a leadership program for the youth known as Kaliloa – Tonga Youth leadership program aims at selecting youths to become role models of the leadership in their communities, families and also the country as a whole.

 

This is the first time the Police Department is hosting a leadership program for the youth.

 

The Deputy Police Commissioner – Pelenatita Vaisuai says there are many challenges faced by the youth such as drugs, alcohol as well as cyber bullying.

 

She says they are hoping that this program will enhance the participants’ skills in reducing these issues in the future.

 

The program is in partnership with other well-known leadership agencies in the country such as His Majesty Armed Forces and Civil Society.

 

About 25 participants participated in this program and they were nominated from five different high schools in the country.

 

This program will end with a graduation ceremony recognizing the selected participants’ achievements on Friday.
