ASPIRANTES tour the Palm Beach County Jail

As part of the violence prevention program in Palm Beach County, ASPIRA took high school youth on March 27, 2009 and middle school youth on April 1, 2009 to the Palm Beach County Jail.

Two Sheriffs took the youth through intake, general population and juvenile detention to speak with inmates about mistakes they've made and what they would do differently if they could. ASPIRANTES were also able to meet "Jess" the police dog and learn about how valuable he is to the Sheriff's Drug Task Force Department.

ASPIRANTES said they learned a lot about the criminal process and enjoyed the day.
