Henderson Life of Crime is a powerful educational program providing life-changing information and is a valuable experience for parents, their teenagers and young adults. Conflict between parents and teens can be challenging and stressful. The program centers on the the everyday choices our youth make - good and bad and the potential consequences those choices bring. Judge Diana Hampton, in conjunction with the Henderson Police Department, brought the Life of Crime program to Henderson in January 2010. This program is conducted in a courtroom at the Henderson Municipal Court located at 243 South Water Street on the northeast corner of Water and Basic Streets in Henderson. The program is held once a month on a Thursday. Check the registration page for exact dates.
Life of Crime is presented by:
Judge Diana Hampton of the Henderson Municipal Court, Henderson Police Department, Henderson Municipal Court Marshal Service and the Henderson Detention Center.
|Time:||5:45 PM Sharp to approximately 8:45 PM. Doors open at 5:20 PM / Everyone MUST be seated prior to 5:45 PM|

A presentation on street crime and the detrimental affect it has on individuals and the community is conducted by a variety of agencies. If availability allows, S.W.A.T., K-9, Criminal Apprehension Team, Repeat Offender Program and other special guests will speak on behalf of their division following a story line of two youths who made a choice that starts a negative domino effect.
Inmates from the Henderson Detention Center who have been involved in criminal activity most of their lives give a very detailed and graphic description of what life is really like behind bars. The inmates also give a brief description of the choices they made and how they ended up on the wrong side of the law impacting their families, friends, themselves, and the community at large.
Each presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.
PLEASE NOTE: Offensive language may be used during the presentation of the program.
