On April 27, the LEAD (Logan Empowerment Action and Development) organization and Project Revive Hope will host a Crime Prevention Town Hall Forum at Logan Middle School from 4-7 p.m.
From 4-5 p.m., informational booths including PRIDE, Child Advocacy Center and Logan Mingo Area Mental Health, will be set up outside the room.
Also from 4-5 p.m., a session for teens and their parents will be conducted by juvenile prosecuting attorney Sabrina Deskins. The session will cover issues teens face, crimes most often commmited by teens and the consequences teens may suffer as a result.
The main forum will begin at 5 p.m. and will feature local leaders, elected officials and speakers from law enforcement, including Logan County Sheriff Sonya Porter and Senator Art Kirkendoll.
LEAD board member and organizer Steve Hall said, “The goal of the forum is to provide information about crime activity to members of the community. Speakers will discuss ways to prevent crime and raise awareness so you don’t become a victim.”
The forum will provide an opportunity for residents to ask questions, learn how to safeguard their homes and families and report criminal activity and law enforcement will explain how current criminal activity in Logan County is being addressed and what future plans are to prevent or deter crime.
