Gwinnett police to hold meeting on teen safety

STONE MOUNTAIN - With prom and summer around the bend, teens and safety will be the focus of a Gwinnett Police Department-sponsored community meeting to be held Thursday in Stone Mountain.

Maj. Keybo Taylor, district commander for the south precinct, will be on hand to discuss and answer questions regarding teen safety issues, including rape prevention, alcohol and drug awareness and accident prevention. Recent criminal activity in the area will also be addressed.

"There's been a few incidents in the south side that we would like to educate teens and their parents on," Gwinnett police spokesman Officer David Schiralli said.

While the forum is open to the general public, discussion topics might not be appropriate for children under 14 years old.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Voices of Faith Baptist Church, located at 2500 Rockbridge Road in Stone Mountain.
