High School Student Engagement

April 27, 2023: In partnership with the R&J Task Force, the DAO hosted a Student & Law Enforcement Symposium at the Justice Center that brought students and law enforcement together from across Chester County to talk to and learn from each other. The day featured an overview of the criminal justice system, a panel discussion, role-play scenarios, small group discussions, and a pizza lunch with students and LEO breaking bread together.

Students were from Avon Grove Charter School, B. Reed Henderson High School, Coatesville Area High School, Conestoga High School, Bishop Shanahan High School, and Villa Maria Academy.

The next Student & Law Enforcement Symposium will be held in Fall 2023. Please contact Communications Coordinator Michelle Bjork at [email protected] if your school is interested in participating.
