District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced today the launch of a new Criminal Justice Shadow Day, giving high school students an opportunity to job shadow professionals from various criminal justice agencies.
Based on the area of interest, students will be paired with prosecuting attorneys, defense attorneys, probation officers, investigators and judges to get a first-hand look at the criminal justice process and the different roles within the system. Students will also have an opportunity to learn about the District Attorney’s Laboratory of Forensic Services.
The Criminal Justice Shadow Day will be held on:
June 25, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The Laboratory of Forensic Services presentation will be held on:
July 16, 2015 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The program is open to current Sacramento County high school students (incoming 9th graders through 12th graders). Eligible students are encouraged to apply.
Students will need to submit a completed application and signed permission slip, which can be downloaded at www.sacda.org. The deadline to apply is June 12, 2015.
The Criminal Justice Shadow Day is one of several DA youth programs designed to increase understanding and engage students in a positive relationship with members of the criminal justice system. (See More Youth Programs)
District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert states, “I am passionate about protecting the safety of our children as well as early crime intervention. I will continue to innovate and implement new ideas to deter criminal activity among students, prevent them from becoming victims of crime and inspire them to explore careers within the public safety field.”
