PAWTUCKETâ€”â€śYouth is wasted on the youngâ€ť and no one knows that better than those working in law enforcement. Sorting out those teens who commit a crime due to immaturity and who deserve a second chance versus those who are truly delinquent is the goal of the city's Juvenile Hearing Board.
It will be 20 years ago this month that Pawtucket's Juvenile Hearing Board was formed, and the panel of citizens has saved many a youthful offender from having a police record, but more importantly, going on to commit further crimes.
PAWTUCKETâ€”A row of mill windows...for someone looking in to glimpse bustling industry and for someone looking out to dream big dreams. This is the image that will soon greet motorists heading into Rhode Island on Interstate 95 near exits 29 and 30 in Pawtucket.
