The Constable Care Child Safety Foundation is delighted to welcome Chris Dawson, Commissioner of Police, as its newest Patron.
Mr Dawson’s patronage was announced last week at a small ceremony at EY.
“The Foundation has been delivering award-winning safety and education programs for almost 30 years, evolving into a modern, hi-tech organisation of harm-prevention leaders,” said Mr Dawson.
“I am pleased to confirm the Western Australia Police Force will continue to work hand-in-hand with the Foundation in our shared goal of creating a safer WA, with a greater role to play in our remote Aboriginal communities in particular.
“I look forward to working with the Members of the Board and my fellow Patrons, the WA Chief Justice the Hon. Wayne Martin AC and Peter Rowsthorn, with a commitment to providing safer environments for children and young adults right across WA”.
Constable Care Child Safety Foundation CEO David Gribble says that the Foundation is thrilled to welcome Mr Dawson, who is known for his commitment to community engagement and crime prevention programs.
“Constable Care has a long standing relationship with the WA Police Force and Mr Dawson’s experience, perspective and passion reinforces our commitment to work together to serve and protect children and young people in WA.”
Mr Dawson has 40 years of experience in law enforcement, and his previous roles have included CEO of the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission, and ten years as Deputy Commissioner of Police.
The Constable Care Child Safety Foundation was founded in 1989 by Sergeant Ross Pengilly and is now an independent charity that keeps children safe from harm through theatre-in-education and community programs.
