Night Patrol teams undertake training

15 August 2017

West Arnhem Regional Council Night Patrol staff from Gunbalanya, Minjilang and Warruwi conducted a training workshop in Gunbalanya facilitated by the safety coordinator recently.
The aim of the training was to review both council and night patrol policies and to develop competencies in order to equip team leaders and safety officers with the knowledge and skills required for them to effectively perform their duties.  
Guest speakers at the workshop included West Arnhem Regional Council Chief Executive Officer Brian Hylands, Police and Team Health. There was also a presentation of certificates to staff who are now qualified in Certificate III Night Patrol Operations.
Certificate presentations were awarded to Minjilang Night Patrol Team Leader Tapoteisi Tapera and Gunbalanya Night Patrol Safety Officer Marietta Nayinggul.
There is a total of five staff who qualified late last year in Certificate III Night Patrol Operations facilitated by Charles Darwin University and there are a further 11 staff to begin their Certificate III training with the first training block beginning August 28,  in Jabiru.
