Wyoming County District Attorney Joseph Peters was the guest speaker at the July 21 Rotary Luncheon at Shadowbrook. DA Joe grew up in Scranton where his father was a 2-term Mayor.  He became a cop, a lawyer, the Deputy Drug Czar in both the Clinton and Bush administrations and was PA's top drug Prosecutor. From his various experiences, he has learned that the best results for a problem are from grass root community responses.
He spoke about a variety of programs that his department is pursuing in the areas of drug abuse, human trafficking, gangs, teen suicide and mental health.  With regard to youth drug addicts, he wants to keep them out of jail and get them the help they need.
