Community forum Feb. 1 to examine local crime
The first forum will be held Monday, Feb. 1, from 6-8 p.m. at Penn State Fayette’s Corporate Training Center in the Eberly Building. The forum will take an in-depth look at local crime, crime-related news, how Penn State’s Administration of Justice program fits into the local community, and how it provides opportunities for students to prepare themselves for a career in administration of justice. Panel members scheduled to participate include Penn State Fayette Administration of Justice professor Dr. Richard Ball; Herald-Standard executive editor Mark O’Keefe; Lt. David Heckman, barracks commander of the state police in Uniontown; and Uniontown police Officer Michael C. Garrow Sr. and police dog Leo.
Additional forums throughout the year will cover other crime-related topics, such as regionalization of law enforcement, drugs, sexual assaults, drunk driving, and how to avoid being a victim of a crime.
