Hudson County Commissioner, and former Seton Hall Basketball alumni, Jerry Walker, led a discussion on Monday regarding the proposed ‘Credible Messenger Hudson County’ pilot program at a press conference in Jersey City. The program is designed to reduce youth violence and incarceration, by bringing the “justice involved” young individuals to connect with adults of similar past experiences. As these relationships are developed, the Credible Messengers also bring together youth and the families, providing them with valuable services and resources in the community. Several speakers at the press conference included Clinton Lacey from CM3 (Credible Messenger Mentoring Movement), County Executive Tom DeGise, Assistant Hudson County Prosecutor & Chief of the Juvenile Unit Lisa Ledoux, County HHS Director Darice Toon, and community stakeholders.
On Thursday August 12th, the County Board of Commissioners will be voting on the proposed $500,000 Dollar pilot program..
