Osborn 6th. Grade 2017
DeKalb County Junior Deputy Program
The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office believes that the interaction with children in the school is a vital step to bridging the gap between the worldly perceptions of Law Enforcement and what we actually represent.
The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office puts on an 8 week class (Jr. Sheriff Class) targeting 6th grades. We look for approximately 30-45 minutes per week but we are also flexible to whatever the school requires of us.
The weekly courses we teach are:
Week #1- Officer Introduction- Duties and Responsibilities of Law Enforcement
Week #2- Tobacco: High Cost Along with Health Problems
Week #3- Alcohol- Fatal Vision Goggles
Week #4- Medical Emergencies
Week #5- Fire Safety
Weal #6- Prescription Drugs Vs. Illegal Drugs
Week #7- Online Safety and Bullying
Week #8- Review and Party!!!
This 8 week program is at no cost to the school along with any items or information given to the students.
