SACKVILLE, N.B. – The benefits of hiring a community program officer are already beginning to show.

Sackville town councillor Margaret Tusz-King said having a new RCMP community program officer in place to work with Sackville-area youth seems to be proving worthwhile, if the early numbers are any indication.

“The work our community program officer is doing is showing success,” said Tusz-King.

She said according to reports from the local high school, where Amelie Jarvis-Lavoie has been focusing much of her efforts, the number of youth being diverted to her for assistance has gone from four or five per month when she began late last fall to only one by the end of the school year.

Tusz-King said the programs and services Jarvis-Lavoie is advocating and encouraging could be turning out to be beneficial for local families.
