On January 19, 2022, Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Supervising Assistant Prosecutor Samantha DeNegri and Sergeant Patrick LaGuerre visited the middle school students of Green Hills School in Newton, and led a presentation on bias issues, cyber harassment and making intelligent choices about social media.

 Officials said students were able to ask questions of the presenters during and after the program.

The MCPO routinely conducts presentations at schools throughout Morris County to present on these important topics, and to talk directly with students.

Last month, Sgt. LaGuerre and SAP DeNegri visited Byram Lakes Intermediate School and Copeland Middle School.

Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll said, “Students today are growing up in a very connected digital world.

It’s the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office’s goal to enable our students to make intelligent choices about how they interact online and in school and especially identify the often significant negative consequences that can occur by hurtful comments or behaviors.
