Youth Services


The Department of Youth Services currently serves forty-five schools within the district. A total of twenty-two deputies are assigned to the unit. Deputies are given primary assignments at each high school, middle school and six deputies cover sixteen elementary schools. Members are also given secondary school assignments and respond as requested.

In addition to prevention programs, deputies also teach the basic understanding of the Criminal Justice System and the role of a law enforcement officer and their duties. They also take law enforcement action as required within their assigned school.

Some of the other programs School Resource Deputies are involved in are:
Sheriff’s Adventure Camp – served 71 youth in 2017
Sheriff’s Youth Ranch – 25 attendees in 2017
Sheriff’s Explorer Post – 20 youth participating
Teen Driver Challenge – 106 students were served over the 5 week period

School Resource Deputies transitioned to “soft uniforms,” consisting of slacks, a polo style deputy shirt and duty gear, designed to make the deputies more approachable.
