Event description

Description

Each year, the District Attorney’s Office hosts its annual CourtWatch training program where citizens receive a crash-course education in judicial processes and felony case proceedings.

The Citizens’ CourtWatch program provides citizens with an understanding of the Fulton County Criminal Justice System.

CourtWatch encourages the community to actively participate in the judicial process by attending and (possibly) providing a community impact statement during criminal court proceedings.

The mission is accomplished by:

• Providing the community with information about criminal offenses that happen in their communities specifically targeting repeat offenders;

• Escorting citizens to the courtroom and answering questions about the court proceedings and process;

• Citizens addressing court through a written or oral Community Impact Statement to the Judge based on neighborhood concerns;

• Educating citizens about the court system through community education; and

• Working in conjunction with the Community Prosecutors to provide case updates during citizen neighborhood meetings.

Speakers will include:

· Fulton County District Attorney' Office

· Fulton County Superior Court

· Atlanta Police Department

Registration will be held from 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM.

The event will begin PROMPTLY at 10:00 AM.


*More logistics information will be sent to registrants closer to the event date.
