ADA Amando Arroyo Spoke to 4th Graders at Little Britain Elementary School

On May 28, 2024 Orange County Assistant District Attorney Amanda Arroyo participated in Career Week at Little Britain Elementary School in the Washingtonville School District.  In speaking with the children in Mr. Grodin’s fourth grade class, ADA Arroyo discussed the process of becoming a lawyer, different levels of crime and how the District Attorney’s Office works together with the police to collect and evaluate evidence that is later presented in court.  ADA Arroyo’s participation represents an extension of the efforts of the District Attorney’s Office Community Affairs Unit, who work daily with community partners to discover the underlying issues that cause crime in our communities, and to seek out creative solutions to those issues.

“I always welcome an opportunity for members of my staff to speak to children in our community,” said District Attorney Hoovler. “It is important to be a role model for our youth, and to answer their curiosity as to how our criminal justice system operates.  ADA Arroyo was once a youngster in Mr. Grodin’s class and has now returned to show the students the type of professional they can aspire to be.”
