The Youth Aid Panel-Volunteers Needed

logoThe Youth Aid Panel run by the Center for Resolutions is looking for parent /adult community volunteers for the new Lansdowne/East Lansdowne Youth Aid Panel. The Panel provides an alternative means for first time juvenile offenders at the discretion of an arresting police officer.  Volunteers meet with juveniles after a summary-level arrest, such as an underage drinking, curfew violation, marijuana use, sexting or retail theft. The panels are poised to intervene in the lives of these young people as a mentor at the first moment they begin to make poor decisions.  After an interview, the panel creates assignments, or resolutions, that upon completion, expunge the child’s criminal record.  The assignments are typically composed of educational classes, community service, and individually tailored projects.  The Youth Aid Panel Program has the youth and community working collaboratively to shift the youth from the label of “criminal” to feeling empowered, educated, and connected to their community.   Volunteers are trained at the Center for Resolutions in Media and usually only meet just once a month.

Vehicle break-ins

Unlocked VehicleWe are experiencing a large increase in the number of thefts from vehicles. Mostly all of the thefts are from UNLOCKED vehicles. Residents are encouraged to lock their car doors and report anyone suspicious. The neighborhood will only be as safe as you demand it to be. When we drive down the street, most people are on their best behavior. The residents themselves will see much more than we can and we encourage you to report anything that you feel is unsafe or criminal activity, we will be happy to investigate. Remember, you can call 911 and remain anonymous.
