Classes are taught by Orange County Sheriff Department Deputies, Orange County Probation Officers and guest speakers.
Decisions Changes Lives
A fifteen-year-old girl slapped and punched another student at school. She was arrested and referred to DECISIONS:
“I was arrested for assault and battery and now I’m on probation. If I get in trouble again they are going to send me to juvenile hall. After hearing the ‘incarcerated youth’ talk, I decided to change my ways. Jail sounds scary and disgusting and I don’t want to go there, ever! I’m so glad I had the chance to come to the DECISIONS program.”
