The DeKalb County Police Department Tucker Precinct is participating in a Community-Cop Talk event on October 21 from 3 to 5 p.m. hosted by the Stone Mountain Seventh Day Adventist Church, 1350 Silver Hill Road in Stone Mountain.
Focusing on juvenile delinquency and youth crime, Community-Cop Talk provides an open discussion to help bridge communication between the public and police department. The event will consist of scenarios designed to help citizens and officers better understand how to deescalate encounters with law enforcement, when the encounter involves juveniles.
Detectives and officers from various units within the department will give presentations on youth crime and the legal process once a crime is committed. Attorneys from the DeKalb County Juvenile Court will also be present for a panel discussion about the juvenile court system.
Participants are invited to attend the church service beginning at noon. Lunch will be served immediately following the service.
