Watchdogs for Justice (WFJ) is sponsoring a “Keeping Kids out of Prison” seminar on Saturday May 26, 2 to 4 p.m., at the Wesley Chapel-William C. Brown Library, 2861 Wesley Chapel Road, Decatur.

WFJ is a nonprofit organization established to decrease the number of young people entering the criminal justice system.  The seminars are designed to educate youths, their parents, and concerned citizens about the pitfalls that lure young people into behavior that can land them in prison.

The community is urged to invite young people and their parents to attend and learn:


  • What to do if stopped by the police
  • How to safely exercise your constitutional rights
  • How to avoid getting caught up in the criminal justice system
  • When to talk and when to keep silent
  • The penalty for Georgia’s seven deadly sins
  • The importance of showing respect for those in positions of authority
