The Message

District Attorney's Public Awareness Video

ON VIDEO spent the day with Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan videotaping several public awareness videos. There are many dangers lurking on our streets, and the DA’s office is doing everything it can to keep us informed and educated about the prevention and prosecution of crime. DA Whelan’s message is clear – he wants to help build a safer place for us to live, work, and play.

The upcoming videos focus on scams against senior citizens, as well as internet crimes against children. Along with Chief Joe Ryan of the Delaware County Criminal Investigation Division, we visited the Residences at Chestnut Ridge in Chester. DA Whelan and Chief Ryan met with concerned seniors and tried to calm their fears. We also went to a library in Chester to talk to some local kids about online predators.

The finished videos will be posted on the County’s website soon. Check back with us to view them, and learn some vital information on keeping your loved ones safe.
