Snellville police offering ‘how-to’ clean up criminal record

The Snellville Police Department and Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office are teaming up to offer a new program for individuals struggling to get a job due to a criminal record. The presentation will be held at 10 a.m. June 3 at the South Gwinnett High School Auditorium, 2288 Main St. E. in Snellville.

Learn how certain criminal history records can be ‘restricted’ for non-criminal justice purposes such as to apply for better employment opportunities or getting various 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,” Snellville Police 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.”
