MEDIA ADVISORY FOR JUNE 28
Division of Criminal Justice to Sponsor Evening of Recognition for Graduates of Paterson Village Initiative Job Training Program

>> Directions to Event

WHAT:
Criminal Justice Director Vaughn L. McKoy will be the keynote speaker at recognition ceremony for at least 15 juvenile offenders completing the third class of the Paterson Village Initiative Job Training Program. The job training component of the Village Initiative provides at-risk, court-involved youth with 15 weeks of hands-on vocational training and job readiness skills, along with GED preparation.

The nationally recognized Village Initiative is part of the Attorney General’s “Gangs, Guns & Drugs” strategy and is coordinated by the Division of Criminal Justice. The collaborative effort between the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office, Paterson Police Department, the Passaic County Superior Court, juvenile probation and parole officers addresses the needs of juvenile offenders in the city of Paterson. The Initiative includes home visits, curfew checks, and monitoring the activities of juvenile probationers during non-traditional hours. The program mobilizes the Paterson community to ensure that juveniles and their families have access to needed assistance. Since the inception of the Village Initiative, violations of probation have also been more than cut in half.
