FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield Police Department is hosting a series of Parent Project classes starting July 11.
The Parent Project educates parents on behavioral intervention techniques such as how to effectively communicate with their children; provide structure and active supervision; identify and intervene with drug or alcohol use; improve school attendance; and how to identify gang involvement or other similar behavior.
The classes will be taught by Fairfield Police Department personnel and non-law enforcement professionals.
Classes will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. and begin July 11, Aug. 13 and Sept. 19. A Spanish-speaking class begins Aug. 26. The location is to be determined. Each session lasts 10 weeks.
