Chatham Co. Management Development unveils memorial bench

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - Chatham County Management Development unveiled a memorial bench on Oct. 14 at the Chatham County Citizens Service Center. The bench is dedicated to victims of violent crimes.

"It's just to honor victims of violent crimes, so that they have a place that they can come reflect. The families and victims of violent crimes both can come and reflect on issues that have happen to them and hopefully to unite our community against such acts of violence and bring us closer together," said Bill Lewis, Chatham Co. public defender.

The bench will serve as a reminder and hopefully have a lasting impact on how the community should come together.
