Athletics

The Wayne County Parks & Recreation Department offers diversified athletic programs to our youth and adults in a clean, safe, and enjoyable environment. WCRD has a rich tradition of excellent youth sports programs and the goal of this department is to carry on that tradition while also adhering to ever changing trends in sports. Our diversified portfolio has something for anyone that is interested in sports! 

Rest assured that you or your child is protected by WCRD as each coach/volunteer is screened and has to consent to a criminal background checkAthletics before being allowed to represent this department. We also provide training and certifications for each coach/volunteer to increase efficiency and validity of our athletic programs. 

We encourage you or your child to get involved in sports and give WCRD the opportunity to provide a program for you! Here are some major benefits of getting your child involved in youth sports: 

The physical benefits of being involved in athletics at a young age are plentiful. By teaching children about the importance of staying active and fit from a young age, we are helping to show them the value of exercise and staying healthy. Physical health and well-being in children is also directly related to their mental health and well-being, and active children that put their often boundless energy to use in a constructive environment are able to grow from the experience of being a part of a team. 

Not only are there physical benefits to being involved in sports at a young age, there are also many benefits that come from the competitive side of sports. Athletic competition and the values and ethics that it carries with it, is a great way for children to learn about how to compete fairly with others. It is one of the many life skills that children can learn from playing youth sports, and it prepares them for the many different kinds of competition they will face in life, as well as giving them, "an opportunity to understand the healthy aspects of competition in a friendly environment. Students of all ages who participate in sports have been found to cope better with competition in other areas of their life" (Yan & McCullagh, 2004).

Disaster Response Plan

The City of Screven cooperates with Wayne County Emergency Management Agency to mitigates disasters as they occur.

Drug Court

History of the National Drug Court

The history of Drug Courts can best be summarized from a June 29, 2000 news release by Attorney General Janet Reno:

Justice Department Grants to Help 99 Communities

Assist Non-Violent Offenders with Drug Problems 

Washington, DC - The Justice Department today announced that it will provide more than $25 million to 99 communities to help them monitor non-violent, substance abusing offenders, through drug courts that oversee their rehabilitation and use sanctions to keep them on the right track. The grants to plan, implement or enhance drug courts will be made by the Justice Department's Office of Justice Programs (OJP). 

"Over the past 10 years, we have seen drug courts go from a concept to a full-fledged, successful initiative with more than 500 courts operating across the nation," said Attorney General Janet Reno. "These courts are helping offenders become drug-free, responsible members of their communities." 

Participants in the initiative are less likely to commit crimes after graduating from a drug court. In Escambia County, Florida, 36 months after admission to the drug court program, only 48 percent of the program graduates were re-arrested as compared to 86 percent of non-graduates and 63 percent of offenders who were sentenced to probation. In Jefferson City, Kentucky, only 13 percent of the program graduates were re-arrested for a felony one year after graduation, while 55 percent of eligible offenders who declined to participate in the program were re-arrested for a felony during that same time period. 

Thirty-eight of today's grants - totaling more than $5 million will help Native American tribes. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's 1997 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse reported that compared to the total U.S. population, Native Americans have higher rates of drug use and alcohol dependence and a higher need for drug abuse treatment. 

"We are pleased to be able to help tribal governments use these effective courts to manage and assist offenders who have substance abuse problems," said OJP Acting Assistant Attorney General Mary Lou Leary. 

Since the drug court program was authorized in the President's 1994 Crime Act, OJP has made approximately 650 grants totaling more than $125. More than 500 drug courts are operating in the United States and more than 280 are being planned. All 50 states have drug courts in operation or in the planning stages. Twenty-two states have enacted legislation that authorizes or funds drug courts and 12 additional states are considering such legislation. 

More than 3,500 participants who lost custody of their children have regained custody after participating in the drug court program. More than 4,500 participants have become current in child support payments after graduating from a drug court.
