A story of connection, culture, and community unfolded in the Outback last week.

Police Minister Yasmin Catley visited the towns of Bourke, Brewarrina, Enngonia Goodooga, and beyond, with senior police in tow.

These included Deputy Commissioner Paul Pisanos, Assistant Commissioner Brett Greentree for the Western Region, Acting Superintendent of Central North Police District Gerard Lawson, Inspector Jodi Stewart, and Inspector Nadine Roberts.

Their mission was to engage in meaningful dialogue with the residents, discussing crime and law enforcement in their communities.

The Western Herald captured the essence of this visit when the entourage arrived at Goodooga Central School, fresh from a trip to Brewarrina.

Amidst the red dust and resilient spirits of the Outback, Minister Catley found a moment of connection with the young minds of Goodooga.

She was not just a Minister for Police on this day; she was a listener, an an admirer of the vibrant local culture.
