SNELLVILLE – If you have a criminal record that is preventing you from getting a job, there is help for you thanks to a new program spearheaded by the Snellville Police Department and Gwinnett County District Attorney's Office.
At 10 a.m., June 3 at the South Gwinnett High School Auditorium, 2288 Main St. E., Snellville, there will be a presentation on how to clean up a criminal record, as certain criminal history records can be “restricted” for non-criminal justice purposes such as apply for better employment opportunities or getting licenses.
“The purpose of this presentation is to assist people who may have had youthful indiscretions or other issues resulting in arrests and convictions that inhibit obtaining gainful employment,” SPD Chief Roy Whitehead said. “This is especially true for employment in criminal justice, but is applicable to any employment opportunity. The partnership with the Gwinnett District Attorney’s Office will begin the process of improving one’s criminal history affording the participant the possibility of obtaining a good or better job.”
