District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announces the launch of a new Youth Academy program, in partnership with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, Sacramento Police Department, and Sacramento County Probation Department.
Students are invited to actively learn about the criminal justice system, hear from our criminal justice partners, and engage in open communication with law enforcement concerning issues that affect youth today.
Topics include: anatomy of a criminal case, race as a factor in the criminal justice system, use of force, gun violence, gangs, dating violence, human trafficking, marijuana, crime scene investigation and evidence, and distracted driving. A career fair will be held at graduation.
Classes will be held twice a month in the evenings at TWO locations:
Sacramento County Sheriff’s Community Service Center ~ 7000 65th St., Sacramento 95823
(APAPA) Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs Assoc. ~ 4000 Truxel Rd., Ste 3, Sacramento 95834
*An optional one day field trip is scheduled to tour the Sacramento Superior Court
The program is open to current Sacramento County high school students (incoming 10th through 12th graders). Eligible students can apply for either the South or North Area academy. They must submit a completed application, which can be downloaded at www.sacda.org.
The deadline to apply is September 11, 2015
DA Anne Marie Schubert states, “The Youth Academy is another opportunity for us to increase understanding and improve relationships between youth and members of the criminal justice system, and encourage students to explore various career opportunities within the public safety field.”
