Nationwide in 2015, 52 law enforcement officers died as a result of traffic-related incidents and of those 52, 11 were struck and killed outside of their vehicle. Remember to MOVE OVER for emergency responders and law enforcement officers on our roadways.
I would like to invite you to lunch on March 8th at noon in District Court Judge Ramsey Lama’s jury room at the Fremont County Courthouse (3rd floor) to come learn about our Teen Court in Fremont County, and hopefully convince you to participate as a mentor to our teen attorneys. Teen Court is conducted once a month, on the first Thursday of the month, at the courthouse from 5 to 7pm. There is no requirement that an attorney volunteer come every time. Rather, our hope is to develop a deeper roster, which means fewer demands on each volunteer.
There will be community events and public education efforts throughout the month of April to raise awareness about child abuse and neglect throughout the 11th Judicial District.
As a member of Fremont County’s Sexual Assault Response Team (SART), a multi-disciplinary body dedicated to improving services and outcomes for sexual assault victims, including children, I would like to spend a moment reminding community members to speak up about child abuse and neglect.
