City of Decatur Decatur Youth Services
The establishment of the Youth Services Department for the City of Decatur was developed after the Mayor formed a Task Force to study and find solutions to the economical, social, and educational problems that directly affect the quality of life of our young citizens. One of the Task Force recommendations was to employ someone to be in charge of disseminating information about problem/solution programs, gather data, identify targeted at-risk youth, promote education efforts, review enforcement programs, and work with public and private agencies as well as volunteer agencies to coordinate and implement programs which would mitigate the social disorders underlying youth criminal activity. In October, 1994, Bruce W. Jones, LBSW, was hired as the City of Decatur’s Youth Services Director.
