In support of Stand Strong Coalition’s goal to keep adult community members informed, we’re looking forward to March’s Monthly Meeting with special guest, Detective Eric Kaechele, from the Lake County Sheriff’s Gang Task Force. Detective Kaechele will share relevant issues the Task Force regularly faces in our community, as well as the terminology (street names/youth jargon) used, the dangers our kids are exposed to, and more importantly, the tell-tale signs of someone in trouble. Information that no doubt any parent and community member committed to staying informed will greatly appreciate.
The meeting is scheduled on Thursday, March 10th - 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at Village of Lincolnshire
