For over 20 years, the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office has collaborated with community volunteers from the National Council of Jewish Women to make testifying in court a little less scary for children by hosting Kids in Court, a Saturday session at the courthouse for kids and families. This presentation will include information on the current state of our program, suggestions on starting your own program and lessons learned from many years of experience. Kids in Court was given the 2016 Award for Excellence in Human Service Programming by the Community Council of Greater Dallas during their annual meeting on November 10, for efforts to make children more comfortable in the courtroom.

Reducing crimes of gun violence by juveniles and young adults, particularly those who are gang-involved, continues to be a critical challenge in many of our nation’s communities. Such violence has contributed to increases in homicides and aggravated assaults in some of our communities.
