Video helps teens to make the right choices

A new video called “Choices” is now available for law enforcement agencies and schools throughout Clermont to help educate teens about the consequences of their actions if they make poor choices.

Produced by the Clermont County Office of Public Information, “Choices” employed volunteer teen actors from the West Clermont Institute of the Performing Arts to portray students who were arrested and incarcerated in the Clermont County Juvenile Detention Center.

Clermont County Communications Director Kathy Lehr said that the video’s storyline follows two possible scenarios involving teens making poor choices.

“The video follows a young woman who is involved in a domestic violence situation at home, and a young man who is found to be in possession of drugs while at school,” she said. “The storyline follows them through the arrests to incarceration at the Clermont County Juvenile Detention Center and appearances in juvenile court.”
