JULY HIGHLIGHTS
UNITY IN THE COMMUNITY
RUTTER PARK
The second Unity in the Community of the year was held on Sunday, July 25 at Rutter Park.

This was a fun, family friendly event where the Sheriff's Office gave away free food, raffled away 25 bikes, and had multiple demonstrations and static displays!
Guests enjoyed burgers, hot dogs, chips, Rice Krispies Treats, and snow cones. SAL would like to thank all the volunteers that made this event such a success!
MEET OUR INTERNS!
ISABELLA
Isabella attends Pleasant Grove High School and is 17 years old. She is involved in the Biomedical Academy at school! She had the opportunity to intern with YSU for 3 weeks and assisted with Unity in the Community, Camp with YSU, and many other events!
ADRIANNA
Adrianna was also one of our interns. She is enrolled in the Florin High School Law Academy. She also had the opportunity to intern with YSU and assisted at many events!
2021 ELK GROVE CIVIC SUMMER GRADUATION
Adrianna and Isabella graduated from the Elk Grove Civic Summer program. This program provides high school students the opportunity to explore different career paths and gain proper work experience. Students were given a 2 week seminar course along with a 3 week internship.

CAMP WITH YSU
SAL partnered with the Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District by participating in a day camp at Fair Oaks Park. The youth interacted with deputies, explored the vehicles, and learned how to use the lights and sirens. Our presence allows us to build positive mentoring relationships among the attendees.
LUNCHTIME WITH YSU
Lunchtime with YSU was held at Arthur C. Butler Elementary. This program brings deputies onto elementary and middle school campuses during lunchtime to interact with and mentor students. This program helps us to introduce the youth in the area to law enforcement in a positive and fun environment.
BEST BUDDIES
The Best Buddies program is held weekly at Antelope High School during the school year. During summer break, Best Buddies volunteers participated in a week-long leadership conference.

´╗┐This program allows both Antelope High students and deputies to mentor students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
YOUTH LEADERSHIP COUNCIL
Every second and fourth Thursday of the month, deputies help facilitate the Youth Leadership Council (YLC), a program designed to help develop and strengthen leadership skills. SAL would like to thank YLC students for assisting the Sheriff's Office with Unity in the Community.
FAMILY NIGHT AT LIBERTY TOWERS
YSU deputies participate in Liberty Tower's "Family Night" every Thursday. This allows deputies to foster positive relationships with the community!
BIGS WITH BADGES
Bigs with Badges is a one-to-one mentoring program that connects youth with law enforcement and other first responders to build lasting relationships. The program gives underprivileged children the opportunity and tools to realize their potential, build their future, and evolve into confident, responsible adults. 
CHECK OUT UPCOMING SAL EVENTS AND PROGRAMS
S.H.O.C.K.
The S.H.O.C.K. program takes on a leadership role by partnering with community-based organizations, local businesses, and other youth-serving agencies to reach out to those youth considered at-risk for making poor choices in their lives.

Chronic absenteeism, continuous disruption to classroom learning, signs of experimentation with drugs and/or alcohol, as well as involvement with the gang lifestyle are considered behaviors that could lead to devastating life-long consequences.

This program is designed to:

  • Redirect negative behavior

  • Provide partnerships with law enforcement, the community, and schools

  • Increase understanding of the criminal justice system

  • Emphasize the legal consequences of violating the law
S.H.O.C.K. is a structured program that provides juveniles with incentives, team building activities, and motivates them through positive reinforcement.

If you're interested in having the opportunity to impact our youth in a positive way through the program, contact Deputy Veronica Cervantes at vcervantes@sacsheriff.com
