On Thursday, June 9 at 6:30pm a Community Safety Workshop will be hosted at Bateman Elementary Auditorium.  (Use the Sacramento Entrance)
The workshop will feature two tracks, one for adults, and one for youths ages 8-16:
For adults:  hear from experts from the 911 center on how emergency calls are received, prioritized and dispatched to the police.  Being informed on the inside process helps us understand how to work within the system better, make our community safer and support the police.  Q&A to follow presentation.
For youth ages 8-16:  an FBI-presentation of the award-winning film, “Crossroads:  Choices and Consequences.”  One teen’s dramatic journey to adulthood as he faces tough choices and potential dire consequences.  FBI personnel will lead the discussion of the film.  The film was produced in the 33rd ward and many locations will be recognizable.  Michelle De Long, our neighbor from the Irving Park East Neighborhood Assn, produced the film and will be in attendance.  This is a wonderful opportunity for students — especially those who may be at risk — to have a conversation about tough choices in their lives.  Click here to view the trailer.
