A POPULAR indigenous member of the Fraser Coast community will put his knowledge and understanding to good use as a new police liaison officer.

Goomblar Wylo has been actively involved in promoting his culture to the younger community.

Mr Wylo spent two weeks training at the police academy and he said he was proud of his new role.

"Talking to most of the community members now they're pretty excited I'm here and I'm excited to be working beside the officers."

Hervey Bay Police Acting Senior Sergeant Darryn Morris said the role of a liaison officer was to help police with cultural matters.

"He's here to assist Hervey Bay Police in breaking down our cultural differences and communicating with our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people," he said.
