The 8th Annual Community Day with DeKalb County Law Enforcement agencies will be held Wednesday, Aug. 2, starting at 8 a.m. at Stars and Strikes bowling center, 1741 Mountain Industrial Blvd., Stone Mountain.
The annual event brings together more than 100 DeKalb County youths and law enforcement representatives for a morning of bowling and words of encouragement to start the new school year. In addition to free bowling, pizza and soft drinks, all youth participants receive a packet of back-to-school supplies.
According to Tom Walker, Sr., who began the program with former Sheriff Thomas Brown, the objectives are to present positive role models for youths, minimize juvenile delinquency in our schools and encourage support for county law enforcement representatives.
Participating agencies include offices of: DeKalb County Sheriff, DeKalb County Solicitor-General, DeKalb County District Attorney, DeKalb County Police, DeKalb County School District Office of Public Safety, DeKalb County Marshalls and Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice.
