September 23, 2010

An in-depth look at the topic of juvenile crime, including gang-related juvenile crime, is a timely topic for the next CSI: Fayette forum scheduled from 6-8 p.m. on Sept. 30, at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus. The public is invited to this free forum, which is hosted by the Herald-Standard and Penn State Fayette in Swimmer Hall, in the Williams Building. Recent events in the news have increased public attention about this topic that is the fifth in the ongoing CSI: Fayette series.

The panel being assembled for the Sept. 30 forum will be a knowledgeable resource for members of the community. Panel members include Detective Donald M. Gmitter from the Uniontown police department; Phyllis Jin, assistant Fayette County district attorney, who primarily handles juvenile cases; Gina Jones, instructor of human development and family studies at Penn State Fayette and a community advocate who has spent the past seven years working with local grassroots organization to build strong neighborhoods and ensure neighborhood stability; and Todd Negola, an expert in juvenile crime and juvenile gangs.

Penn State Fayette partnered with the Herald-Standard to present these community forums to offer an opportunity for area residents to learn about and discuss topics of interest related to local crime and law enforcement. The forums are free to the public. No reservations are required.
