RICHMOND, Va. - Police Chief Alfred Durham, and School Superintendent Dr. Dana Bedden, visit the studio to talk about a new program created this past January to help disadvantaged youths in the area. "LIFE," Law Enforcement Intervention Focusing on Education, targets students in the community who have been in trouble with the law or committed misdemeanors. Police Chief Durham says that the nine week program aims to build a positive relationship between the students and law enforcement officers, and addresses issues such as gangs and how to get out of them. For more information call Captain Angela Green at 804-239-2461
