It will address issues of search and seizure limits, probable cause and reasonable suspicion. Activities will be provided that will present students with the information needed to not only understand their rights and responsibilities but also how searches can ensure student safety. Participants will receive lessons, activities, and resources that will assist them in preparing students to become responsible citizens.
The “When You Turn 18” brochure was developed to inform students of the new rights and responsibilities that they receive on their 18th birthday. Twenty-one different topics are addressed, from contracts and credit cards to domestic violence and drugs. All topics are relevant to students’ lives and focus on the legality of each issue. Through these lessons and activities, students will be provided with the necessary knowledge to assist them in exercising their rights while remaining law-abiding citizens.
