Essex County Prosecutor’s Office to Host Spring 2017 Citizens & Clergy Academy
Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings, starting April 18 and will run through May 30. The classes begin at 6:00 p.m. and end at 8:00 p.m.
Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray announced earlier this month that the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office will host its Spring 2017 Citizens and Clergy Academy, a six-week training program for members of the community.
The Citizens and Clergy Academy is a training program designed to familiarize clergy and other members of the community with the day-to-day operations of the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office. Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings, starting April 18 and will run through May 30. The classes begin at 6:00 p.m. and end at 8:00 p.m.
“The goal of this training program, which is held two times a year, is to help members of the community better understand the work of the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office,’’ said Acting Prosecutor Murray. “During the classes we explain what we do here. We explain the services available to witnesses and victims. We walk participants through the legal process and generally help members of the clergy and other participants understand the role of the county prosecutor’s office.’’
Classes, which are open to anyone 18 years old or older, will be held at the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, which is located at 50 West Market Street, 3rd Floor, Newark, NJ. A certificate will be awarded to each participant who successfully completes the course at the graduation ceremony.
Registration is required. Anyone with questions should contact Ms. Kimberly Jones at 973-621-1315.
