The City of Chattanooga's Office of Multicultural Affairs in collaboration with Office of Faith Based and Community Partnerships will present The Criminal Justice System, What Everyone Should Know on Thursday, 4:30-6:30 p.m., at the Central City Complex, 730 M.L. King Blvd. Moderator for the event will be former city judge, Walter Williams.
The goal of this presentation will be to provide a basic understanding of how the criminal justice system works and to identify ways in which community leaders can improve outcomes.
Attendees will hear from a variety of experts in the legal field who will explain the various stages of arrest, bond, prosecution, sentencing and parole or probation. Citizens who are impacted by crime and those who must come before the system will learn what to do and what to expect when interacting with the criminal justice system.
The forum is free and open to the public.
