Handle with Care Webinar

This virtual course discusses the Handle with Care, an innovative program taking place in several states across the country. Handle with Care creates a network of communication between local law enforcement and schools that alerts school personnel that a child has been exposed to or witnessed a violent crime. This program highlights the benefits of community organizations working together to support children and increase awareness of the effects of crime on youth and community.  If you would like to learn more about this program and how it may be beneficial in your community, press the link above to register!
