Youth and Law Enforcement Symposium

In partnership with the Race & Justice Task Force and the Chester County Commissioners, the Chester County District Attorney's Office hosted two Student & Law Enforcement Symposiums at the Justice Center, bringing together students and law enforcement from across Chester County to talk to and learn from each other. Each symposium featured an overview of the criminal justice system, a panel discussion, small group discussions, role-play scenarios, and a pizza lunch with students and law enforcement breaking bread together.
