Resources for School

State's Attorney's O​​ffice
The Lake County State's Attorney's Office can help local schools by:
  1. Providing talks to teachers, parents or students on the dangers of substance abuse, teen dating violence, cyber safety, anti-bullying campaign, gang awareness and prevention, and school safety. These talks are done through the Special Programs Department and can be scheduled by calling Carrie Flanigan at 847-377-3000.
  2. Working with the schools to develop alcohol and drug abuse prevention strategies within their schools. The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office Juvenile Justice Council is currently working on a Juvenile Resource Guide that will provide all schools with resources available in the county to help our youth. Communities play the primary role in preventing juvenile delinquency and the criminal victimization of juveniles. Working to engage all community members, business leaders, media representatives, teachers, parents, grandparents, young people, policy makers, clergy, elected officials and law enforcement is vital for ensuring the health and well-being of children. If you are interested in learning more about the Juvenile Justice Council please call Carrie Flanigan at 847-377-3000.
  3. Providing information to disseminate to schools on our prevention education programs such as Anti-Bullying, Teen Dating Violence, and Cyber Safety. All materials are free and can be obtained by calling the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office at 847-377-3000.
  4. Helping schools identify the problem and give referrals for youth resources in the county. To receive a copy of the Lake County Juvenile Resource Guide please email Carrie Flanigan​.
Ju​dicial Speakers Bureau
​Because our justice system can sometimes appear to be complex, the Lake County Circuit Court offers presentations designed to explain, in everyday language, just how your judicial system works.

The Judicial Speakers Bureau of Lake County provides judges to speak to a variety of groups throughout the county. Students, seniors, public service organizations, business groups, advocates, and legal groups are a few examples. Judges regularly assist teachers in the classroom by judging mock trials, addressing career programs, assisting with oratorical contests, advising students, and presenting real-life trial examples as learning tools. Presentations on a number of topics are available to schools and civic and business groups in Lake County. Learn more about the Judicial Speakers Bureau​.

Lake County Sheriff's Office Community Services Speakers
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office is the largest law enforcement agency in Lake County with many key and diverse roles. Our Community Services Team offers presentations designed to explain the many facets of the Sheriff's Office from criminal investigations to warrants and the Lake County Adult Correctional facility. Examples of programs provided to schools include the Choices program, DUI Awareness, Personal Safety and Security, and Everything a Parent Needs to Know About Gangs, ​to name a few. If your school, parents group or organization is interested in securing a speaker for an upcoming event, please contact our office at 847-377-4211 or email Roman Buchberger​.
