Local Law Enforcement Officials Support Early Childhood Education Funding

How can we keep children from winding up in jail as adults?

Some law enforcement officials think they may know the answer – they say it partially boils down to early childhood education.

Sheriffs, Prosecutors, police and more met in Charlevoix Monday morning to show support for early childhood education funding.

The group is part of the Fight Crime: Invest in Kids organization.

Statistics obtained by the organization show there's a link between early education and a reduced chance of committing a crime later in life.

The say supporting the early childhood education programs is a money-saver in the long-run.
