The Philadelphia Youth Commission today will host the “Know Your Rights and Responsibilities” youth form at West Philadelphia’s Global Leadership Academy Charter School. A youthful approach to yesteday’s police misconduct hearing with City Council, the event aims to create smoother interactions between youth and police officers.

    Spearheaded by Councilman Curtis Jones, the forum will include a panel, round-table discussion and role-playing with employees from various city safety agencies like the deputy mayor of Public Safety and the captain of the 19th police district.
