Talented young people have shown off their skills to officers during an event in Gravesend.
The Gifted Young Generation evening was attended by Deputy Divisional Commander for north Kent, Superintendent Neil Loudon, and north Kent Chief Insp Junior Dann.
Youth engagement officers Tioni King-Last and Joanne Hartley also attended the event, alongside other partner organisations and friends and family of those in the show.
The annual event, which was held on Friday 27 August 2021 at Gravesend Town Centre, featured teenagers aged 11 to 19, who showcased their musical talents of singing and dancing along with a young magician.
The event, which is run by community organisation The Grand, allowed officers to talk to the young people and answer any questions, or address any community concerns they may have.
North Kent Chief Insp Junior Dann said: ‘We thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the young people during the event and it gave us a chance to witness the young talent within Gravesham.
‘The success of the evening is a demonstration of hard work and commitment from the local young performers, and despite the constraints and challenges around Covid-19, this was a wonderful example of what can successfully be achieved by all those involved in putting on this amazing show.
‘We want our young people to know we are there to protect them and are approachable and will provide assistance and support to anyone who needs it.’
