Jarod Booth, Isiah Corrigan and Nickeisha Stevens all from the Binjari Community applied to the Northern Territory Police Force to be Aboriginal Liaison Officers, and had help with their applications from the Nyirrunggulung-Rise team.
The process for all three participants has been two years in the making. Deb Aloisi (CEO of Binjari Aboriginal Corporation) had many, many meetings with the NT Police both here and in Darwin and all the meetings have finally paid off.
Nadine Hunter, our Service Coordinator was also a great help with updating all participant resumes, once it was finally approved for Deb to put their applications in to apply for Aboriginal Liaison Officers for NT Police.
Jarod Booth, Isiah Corrigan and Nickeisha Stevens attended two weeks training in Darwin and graduated on 7 April 2022 which Deb Aloisi and Evonne Booth attended.
Jarod Booth was so shocked when his name was called out for the “Commissioner Award” he turned around to the Binjari staff and pumped his arm in the air and stuck his thumb up.
All three participants returned to Katherine on the 8th of April 2022 (By POLICE Air) and reported to the Katherine Police Station for their schedule/briefing for the next week. All three participants are now on three months’ probation.
Well done to all involved and congratulations to Jarod Booth, Isiah Corrigan and Nickeisha Stevens on your new roles.
