Crime and Consequences Safety Campaign in Gulfport
Students at Bayou View Middle School in Gulfport received a lesson in making positive choices, courtesy of JZ 94.5 and Mississippi Power.
Gulfport police chief, Harrison County district attorney, and others joined in on speaking to students about the consequences of their actions.
A jail cell was placed in the center of the stage to give the kids a glimpse of what life could be if they go down the wrong path.
The Crime and Consequences campaign is not only to bring awareness to students about what could happen, but also help bridge the gap between police and the youth. CFO, Promotions Director JZ 94.5 Michael Daniels said, “I think the biggest thing at this age group, because it was sixth, seventh, and eighth graders, so hopefully they can understand my mistakes have consequences. If I associate myself with something, if I’m on social media, all those things have consequences. So, the biggest thing is to make better decisions.”
The Crime and Consequences campaign is a long-term effort between JZ 94.5 and law enforcement.
