Albury Sen-Constables Anthony and Mark Clifford are identical twins and partners in crime as they raise awareness for this year’s Time 4 Kids, the main fund-raiser for the Albury PCYC.
While the brothers, 27, will not be stepping behind bars during next month’s campaign, they are doing their bit to encourage business leaders and members of the community to take part.
Anthony said he was glad the pair would be on holidays, at different locations, during the fund-raiser.
“I spend enough time with him at work, I don’t want to be locked up with him,” he said.
The brothers finished their training three months apart and to their surprise were both placed in their hometown of Albury.
With the motto “Do Time To Stop Youth Crime”, participants will spend time in a mock cell at Bunnings Albury during National Youth Week, from April 8 to 11.
Supt Beth Stirton took part last year and will once again be cuffed and jailed to raise funds to help the PCYC run programs to help keep kids out of crime.
PCYC youth case manager Sen-Constable Kylie Bowden said the PCYC was not-for-profit and self-funded.
The Albury PCYC runs a truancy program for students and fund-raising goes towards buying things like breakfast for the students in the program.
“There’s about 100 students a day that aren’t going to schools in Albury,” Sen-Constable Bowden said.
