Calling all interested young Santeeans – especially Boy and Girl Scouts – the Santee Sheriff’s Station will be holding a Youth Open House on November 18 starting at 1800 (that’s 6:00 pm for us average folks). This is a great opportunity for young people to get a taste of what it means to be a Sheriff’s Deputy and possibly join the Sheriff’s Explorer Program. This could also be a chance for scouts to get information on how the Department can help them work toward a crime prevention, law, traffic safety, or other merit badge.
The evening will start off with a welcome by Captain Duke and introductions by Crime Prevention Specialist Barbara Wallace. Deputy Blanco will talk about being a Patrol Deputy and Deputy Wilson will discuss the Traffic Deputy assignment. Juvenile Investigator Detective Whiteman will talk about juvenile crime issues and the role of investigating detectives. Explorer Advisors Deputy Blanco and Deputy Klepac will be there to talk about the program and answer any questions. There will also be K-9 demonstration and a tour of the station.
