BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - In an effort to crack down on crime in Louisiana neighborhoods a class of teenagers will graduate as ambassadors in the ways of stopping crime.
This year marks the fifth annual induction of teen ambassadors for Crime Stoppers. The teens will take field trips to crime labs and learn about the court system while being a part of the largest class of ambassadors that Crime Stoppers has ever seen.
"I want to get a better understanding of what I can do to teach my peers and classmates," says Ambassador Christopher Abadie.
Crime Stoppers executives say that even though kids generally trust their program, the organization needed to do more to empower teens to make the right choices.
More information on the program can be found at Crime Stoppers' website.
