Queen Charlotte’s teen centre has the support of police in its search for funding to stay open.
“There is a definite need for these young people to have a place to go and interact in a safe manner with other teens. Someplace they can call their own or have a sense of security,” says Sgt. Darcy Gollan in a letter to the Queen Charlotte Teen Centre.
He credits the centre for creating a positive environment for teens in Queen Charlotte, a place where police rarely have to intervene in their activities.
In Sandspit and Skidegate where teens do not have a safe, non-commercial meeting place, police have had more frequent, negative contact with teens, according to Sgt. Gollan.
