The purpose of this meeting is to sponsor a program by the Solicitor’s office called PTI, which consists of “First Time Offenders” who have been charged with non-violent crimes. This is an eight week program that consists of various speakers who share their ideas. In these sessions, there is a question and answer session.
The meeting was opened by Rev. Michael Battle, Chaplain, with prayer. He introduced the graduate and speakers.
There was one graduate. She gave a required 250 words plus essay, stating “What PTI Means To Me.” It was well received. She was very appreciative to the staff and speakers for their continual support.
