I have a couple of scouts who want to earn the Crime Prevention merit badge,
and I am trying to figure out how to satisfy requirement 7:
7. Visit a jail or detention facility. Discuss your experience with your
None of the local jails allow anyone under 18 to visit. There are holding
cells at the court facility in which they lock up people on their way to and
from courtrooms, but I do not know if this qualifies as a detention facility.
I know scouts are earning this badge. How are you satisfying this
requirement? As a side issue, if other jurisdictions have similar policies,
should this requirement be changed?
Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
