Gang Task Force Event

The Gang and Youth Violence Task Force with Community Partnerships of the Ozarks hosted an event on June 20, 2017 from 6:00pm – 8:30pm at the Boys & Girls Club – Musgrave Unit.  

We had two community speakers, CPO’s Steve Miller and Sgt. Kibby from the Springfield Police Department, provide us with some informative presentations. They discussed drug and violence prevention as well as how music and movies influence our choices. We served hot dogs, chips, cookies, and drinks, as well as gave out raffle prizes. There were 20 teens and 9 adults in attendance. 

The teens were very involved with the speakers and asked great questions concerning the topics being discussed. Overall it was a great event!
