The program gives students the opportunity to gain insight into law enforcement prior to entering college and deciding if they want to pursue a degree in law enforcement. The program will last for three months and give students the opportunity to spend time in all divisions of the sheriff’s office.
The first participant in the program began their job shadowing in the corrections division on Sept. 19. The student will also be riding with patrol deputies, spending time in the records division, at the courthouse, and with the investigations unit.
“The Kendall County Sheriff’s Office is excited to be able to provide practical experience to students who show an interest in law enforcement and partner with educational professionals to enhance learning opportunities for students,” said Sheriff Dwight A. Baird.
