FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield Police Activities League will offer a prescription to deal with youth violence as a doctor deals with disease.
The “Alive and Free Prescription” crime-prevention program will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Fridays, starting this week at the Matt Garcia Youth Center at 250 Travis Blvd.
Fairfield PAL members take part in the program that identifies violence as a disease and addresses youth who are at risk for violence as individuals “infected” with the disease of violence. The goal of Alive and Free Prescription is to prevent violence and reduce youth incarceration.
PAL members may join the Alive and Free Prescription program at any time throughout the year. For more information, call 422-6288 or visit www.fairfield-pal.org.
