The Juvenile Probation Department will attempt to provide speakers on a number of topics to various organizations. We participate in Project Lead, an elementary school program with numerous criminal justice agencies, which provides speakers to 5th and 6th graders.
We have a slide show presentation showing the process some children and their parents experience from police involvement to juvenile detention, Juvenile Court, Indiana Boys and Girls school, Porter County Jail, adult court and prison. We also present to high school, history, government, career, and health classes. The topics vary from decision making, drug and alcohol education, probation's role in government and community awareness. We have presented in college classes as well.
The Juvenile Probation Department is made up of people with varied backgrounds in corrections, education, and counseling. We are extremely involved in numerous community organizations and can provide an encompassing presentation.
