Police. Youth. One room. Five days. Inspirational. Enlightening. Honest.
When at-risk high school students open up and have honest dialogue about issues they are facing, are allowed to share their stories and learn about the men and women behind the badge, anything is possible. Thanks to the Youth & Police Initiative, officers and at-risk teens meet for a week to break down barriers and stereotypes and have honest conversations about issues facing youth and the role of law enforcement. Jennifer DeRuwe, the Youth & Police Initiative Director for the Spokane Police Department will be presenting at the February 1, 2018 meeting of the Northeast FYSPRT. www.fysprtnortheast.org
