Chief Rodney Monroe attended the Do the Write Thing Essay Challenge on Tuesday, April 24.
Thirty-four middle school students were recognized for their essays submitted for the 2012 Do the Write Thing Essay Challenge
. Participating principals and teachers from 18 schools were also in attendance at the annual reception to congratulate the winners and their families.
The challenge gives middle school students an opportunity to examine the impact of youth violence on their lives. Through classroom discussions and writings, students communicate what they think should be done to reduce youth violence. In addition, they make personal commitments to do something about the problem. Chief Monroe was honored to take part in recognizing these young members of our community.
The local effort is spearheaded by Mecklenburg County Community Support Services Project Safe Neighborhoods, a federally funded program working to keep our communities safe by eliminating gun violence. Administered by the U.S. Attorney's office, Project Safe Neighborhoods’ task force is made up of members of state and local law enforcement, community groups, educational institutions and Mecklenburg County.
For additional information on the effects of gun violence in our community
