´╗┐Over the years, the mentor program has helped hundreds of students create and pursue their college and career goals. Mentors range from Crime Analysts Officers, Record Officers, Deputies, Dispatchers, Sergeants, and Captains.´╗┐

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 would like to refer an at-risk juvenile, click on the link provided below. We are now accepting applications for S.H.O.C.K. 2022.
If you have any questions regarding S.H.O.C.K. contact Kristy Walls at kwalls@sacsheriff.com
