District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert Announces:
3rd Annual “Criminal Justice Shadow Day”

District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announces that student registration is now open for the 3rd Annual “Criminal Justice Shadow Day.”  This unique program gives 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, law enforcement officers, investigators and judges to get a first-hand look at the criminal justice process and the different roles within the system.  There will also be a presentation on crime scene investigations (CSI), evidence collection, and forensic science used to solve crimes.  

This year’s Criminal Justice Shadow Day will be held:
 June 16, 2017 ~ 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 
Board of Supervisors’ Chambers 
Sacramento County Administration Building ~ 700 H Street, Sacramento

The program is open to current Sacramento County high school students (incoming 9th graders through 12th graders).  Students will need to submit completed registration forms and a signed permission slip, which can be downloaded at  

Deadline to Apply: June 9, 2017 
Space is limited and on a first come, first served basis. 
Early registration is highly encouraged.

DA Anne Marie Schubert states, “Since its launch in 2015, close to 200 students from 56 schools across Sacramento County have participated in the Criminal Justice Shadow Day.  The success of the program is a result of the partnerships we have with our criminal justice colleagues, and our shared commitment to engage with our youth and inspire them to pursue careers in the justice system.” 

The Criminal Justice Shadow Day is one of several DA youth programs designed to increase understanding and build positive relationships between youth and members of the criminal justice system.  (See More Youth Programs).
