The program 

The Police Call Outs Program supports young people in police interviews when a parent, guardian or other suitable adult is unavailable. Volunteers in this program are required to attend police interviews on an 'on-call' basis to ensure that young people's rights are respected and that they feel supported during this process.

For this role you will have the capability to interact positively with young people and provide non-judgmental support, whilst engaging professionally with the South Australian Police. It would be great if you have knowledge and experience working within the youth justice system, but it is not required.
