How often do you hear a news report end with the phrase "the arrested youth was transported to the Juvenile Assessment Center?" Do you ever wonder what happens after that?
Opened in 2003, the Juvenile Assessment Center (JAC) provides a wide range of services to prevent youth crime and to intervene when youth crime occurs. On Wednesday (May 22) the JAC will host an open house from 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. to give the public a behind the scenes look at what happens when an arrested youth is brought in. Parents will also learn about the many other resources available to assist families before a youth's behavior escalates out of control.
The JAC is located at 2107 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd in Fort Myers. Parking is available across the street from the entrance on Heitman Street.
RSVP to (239) 258-3457. For more information, call the Juvenile Assessment Center at (239) 258-3450.
