Jack Fitzpatrick, Criminal Justice Planner
Local students involved in public safety videos
Local college students Erin Gunderson, Lily Kazemi, Ian Huber, Bradley Hamilton, Stephanie Levin, Jesse Levine and Charlotte Alan are acting in a new series of public safety videos produced to combat youth violence, delinquency and involvement in the criminal justice system.
The videos are available on YouTube (search “Colonial Community Criminal Justice Board”) and on school websites. So far, the students have created videos on the importance of knowing who you are communicating with online and the dangers of texting while driving. Upcoming videos will cover “sexting,” theft prevention, unauthorized use of motor vehicles, texting threats/harassment, human trafficking and “bottle bombs."
The videos are supported by the Juvenile Justice Committee of the Colonial Criminal Justice Board, the James City County Police and York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer (SRO) programs, the College of William and Mary Office of Community Engagement, the Merrimac Detention Center and the Warhill High School Bands.
