Students learn about county government at Smart Justice Expo

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Students from Windsor Forest and New Hampstead high schools learned about county government Tuesday at the Smart Justice Expo.

The event allowed the students to learn about various community outreach programs available to them. They also learned about the Chatham County departments related to public safety and the judicial system.

"The important thing is to learn about county government and what it does, and also to learn about some different life choices. That is why we have got the teen maze to simulate what it is like to drive impaired," said Peter Nichols, public information officer, Chatham County Commission.

The expo also allowed students to learn the consequences of driving under the influence and texting while driving.
