Reach Out team visits Police headquarters
Before setting off on their annual trek to compete in the "Peace on the Streets" Basketball tournament in Nassau, the team from Reach Out Ministries took time out to meet with local law enforcement officers to reinforce their philosophy of helping to bring peace on the streets of Grand Bahama.
At 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday July 4, 2012, the founders of Reachout Youth Ministry here in Freeport, Dudley and Katie Seide, along with a group of young men, paid a courtesy call on Emrick Seymour, the Assistant Commissioner of Police for Grand Bahama and the Northern Bahamas at the Police Headquarters on The Mall Drive.
This visit to Police Headquarters marks the commencement of a field trip to New Providence where the boys will also participate in the 'Nelson Cooper Peace on the Street' Basketball Tournament which will be held July 11 - 14. While in?Nassau, the boys will also make a special trip to the prison to let the youngsters get a reality check on the consequences of committing crimes. Over the years, Seide said that the visit to the prison has served as a deterrent to crime and he's hoping that his efforts continue to pay off.
The Assistant Commissioner took time to 'chat' with the group and offered words of encouragement and challenged them to make good choices, which can impact them for life.
The Founders of the youth organization also made a presentation of a T-shirt and booklet to Assistant Commissioner Seymour during the visit.
