Fayette County School System and Local Law Enforcement Offer Community Awareness Seminar

The Fayette County School System, local law enforcement agencies and District Attorney Scott Ballard have collaborated again this year to offer another series of Community Awareness Seminars at each of the county’s five high schools in October.

The free seminars offer participants an opportunity to learn more about safety and legal issues affecting Fayette’s students. Seminar topics will be lead by local law enforcement representatives with knowledge and experience in the areas.

Discussion topics include bullying and cyber-bullying presented by the Peachtree City Police Department, statutory rape presented by the City of Fayetteville Police Department and alcohol and drug awareness presented by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department.

The seminars are from 7-8:30 p.m. and will be held on the following dates at these locations:

October 6, Starr’s Mill High

October 7, Sandy Creek High

October 9, Whitewater High

October 13, McIntosh High

October 21, Fayette County High

A question and answer session with the seminar panel will follow the presentations. Parents with students of all ages are welcome to attend any seminar location that is most convenient. No preregistration is required.

The purpose of the event is to help parents become better informed about serious issues affecting youth in Fayette County.

This marks the second time that local law enforcement personnel have partnered with the school system to offer Community Awareness Seminars. The first set of seminars were held in February and March and focused on gang awareness, Internet safety and interaction with law enforcement.
