Yorktown ASK Youth Court , a set on Flickr.
On February 13, 2013 I attended the annual Youth Court Commencement Ceremony sponsored by Alliance for Safe Kids (ASK) of Yorktown.
Each year ASK along with assistance from the Town of Yorktown, Yorktown Police and Westchester County Police and Dept. of Probation train students from Yorktown and Lakeland High Schools the process and procedures of the Yorktown Justice Court. The students get to learn the specific responsibilities of each officer of the court and participate in mock trials and arraignments. Eventually, they will participate in actual cases before the court. This year’s student participation was the largest to date.
