FLEMINGTON, NJ – The County Prosecutors in Hunterdon and Warren will host a town hall meeting on May 29.
The topics will be those “impacting juvenile justice,” according to a press release. The meeting will be held at 5 p.m. at North Hunterdon High School on Route 31 in Clinton Township.
The meeting is part of a new initiative mandated by the state Attorney General’s Office. The initiative is named the “21/21 Community Policing Project,” and is intended to discuss issues relevant to community policing in the 21st century in all 21 counties of the state.
“The goal of our ‘21/21 Project’ is to bridge those divides by bringing law enforcement together with community leaders and stakeholders, encouraging dialogue on critical issues, and building relationships of trust that will continue after these meetings are adjourned,” said state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal in the press release.
“One of the topics of discussion will be teen technology and the influence it has on today’s youth,” said acting Hunterdon Prosecutor Michael J. Williams. “We will also discuss the ongoing issue of drug use and vaping in our schools. These are very important issues that not only affect students, parents, and teachers, but also the community.”
The press release was issued jointly by Williams and Warren County Prosecutor Richard T. Burke.
