SUMMIT COUNTY “-A group of Summit, Park and Eagle County residents were recently sworn in by District Judge Terry Ruckriegle as CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) volunteers. They will serve as child advocates in dependency and neglect cases, exploring each child’s background and assess each situation and make objective recommendations to the court. Each CASA volunteer must undergo a background check, interview process and complete a thorough training program.
The alert system has a database that tracks physical addresses and can send messages within a defined area.
