Community Awareness Seminar Offered by Fayette County School System and Local Law Enforcement

The Fayette County Public School System, local law enforcement agencies and District Attorney Scott Ballard have collaborated again this year to offer another Community Awareness Seminar this month.

The free seminar offers participants an opportunity to learn more about safety and legal issues affecting Fayette’ County's students. Seminar topics have been generated by students and will include the new “Romeo and Juliet” law, drug and alcohol issues, Minor in Possession (MIP) and how it affects teens and their records, legal age of becoming an adult and texting while driving. Discussions will be lead by local law enforcement representatives with knowledge and experience in the areas presented.

The seminar is scheduled for October 27 at 7 p.m. in the McIntosh High School auditorium. All high school and middle school eighth grade students and their parents are invited to attend. No preregistration is required. A question and answer session with the seminar panel will follow the presentations.

The purpose of the event is to help parents and students become better informed about serious issues affecting youth in Fayette. This marks the third year local law enforcement personnel have partnered with the school system to offer Community Awareness Seminars.
