It's hard to miss the news reports on guns, drugs, and violence occurring in the Chicago area.
As a result, Hanover Township Youth and Family Services hosted its first ever Youth Violence Symposium yesterday to gain a better understanding of what youth violence looks like in the Township.
Local experts from 15 agencies with law enforcement, juvenile justice, education, mental health and public health fields attended to discuss the data that is available and also possible solutions to youth violence in Hanover Township.
Information gathered from today's event will be used to write a report for the purpose of assessing the programs and services offered by the Township.
Thank you to all that attended and provided input!
