High School students recently learned about working in law enforcement with CDCR from the CDCR Division of Adult Parole Operations (DAPO) staff in Sacramento.
Capitol District Administrator and staff were invited to participate in the Sacramento County Youth Academies event. The event gave high school students throughout Sacramento County the opportunity to learn about the criminal justice system, hear from our criminal justice partners, and engage in open communication between law enforcement and themselves.
Law enforcement agencies provided information to those who want to pursue careers in criminal justice and/or law enforcement.
The DAPO administrator and several agents attended the event. Participating along with DAPO were representatives from the Sacramento Police Department, the California Highway Patrol, and from Sacramento County the Sheriff’s Department, the District Attorney’s Office, the Public Defender’s Office and the Probation Department.
Parole set up a table with CDCR/DAPO career information and showed a video of the 2017 Operation Boo. DAPO also brought a GPS tag to display and explained how the GPS technology works to track parolees.
Throughout the night, agents received several positive remarks from the youth and their families. Many thanked the Agents for the jobs they do. It was a positive encounter for the agents and the youth participants.
