The Glenn County District Attorney’s Office implemented a youth outreach project at Mill Street School in Orland, where members of law enforcement and partnering agencies come to the Mill Street School Library for 20 minutes before school starts to read to students.

The project, dubbed Learn with a LEO (Law Enforcement Officer), takes place every Wednesday through June 5. The goals of the program are to provide collaborative community relationship building between law enforcement and youth in school.

This includes allowing the youth to meet the different kinds of law enforcement officers in the community.  Parole Agent I Daniel Carroll, of the Red Bluff Parole Unit, volunteered to participate in the program on Feb. 13. He read to about 45 students.
