    Clark County Sheriff, Danny Rodden, is sponsoring a conference on teen violence.  
    Sheriff Rodden has invited author and speaker Phil Chalmers to Clark County for this presentation, “Inside the Mind of a Teen Killer”.  
    Phil Chalmers has been studying youth culture and juvenile homicide for over 20 years, and is a former police chaplain. He has written many books and produced two documentaries on youth culture.  What separates Chalmers from other speakers and writers is he actually speaks to the killers themselves, as well as their victims and relatives.  He also spends considerable time with law enforcement and investigators to find out what really happened, how we could have avoided this tragedy, study what the police did right, and learn what the police could have done different.
    Chalmers wants to teach us “Why Today’s Teens Kill”, “What Motivates Them”, and “What Warning Signs”, you should be looking for.

    Due to the recent violence in local schools and churches, Sheriff  Rodden is inviting you to this informative conference. Sheriff Rodden hopes that after attending this conference, local law enforcement and local officials will be able to better protect the community by recognizing some of these warning signs.
    The conference is being held on Tuesday, June 16 at KYE’S, located at 500 Missouri Avenue in Jeffersonville. The doors open at 8 a.m. with the conference beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m.  
    The cost is $20 per person, which includes coffee breaks and lunch.  
    This seminar is open to teachers, counselors, school administrators, ministers, youth leaders (teachers, pastors, ministers, etc.), bus drivers, law enforcement, probation, prosecutors, corrections officers, etc.
