"We really want to make this a community effort, one that can basically have a positive impact on our community. It starts at home with our parents," said Scott Gofourth, Parsons Police Chief.
The meeting begins at 6:30 tonight at the Carnegie Arts Center in Parsons. Experts will be available to answer questions from parents.
