The Sheriff’s Community Impact Program (SCIP) is proud to introduce the S.H.O.C.K. program to students, parents, and school staff in Sacramento County. This very successful youth diversion program was developed by sheriff’s deputies from the Apple Valley Police Activities League and the Apple Valley Police Department, located approximately 92 miles east of Los Angeles.
The S.H.O.C.K. program along with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, will take a leadership role by partnering with Community-Based Organizations, local businesses, and other youth-serving agencies, to reach out to those youth considered at risk for making poor choices in their lives. Chronic absenteeism, continuous disruption to classroom learning, signs of experimentation with drugs and/or alcohol, as well as involvement with the gang lifestyle, are considered behaviors that could lead to devastating life-long consequences.
This program is designed to:
- Re-direct negative behavior
- Provide partnerships with law enforcement, the community and schools
- Increase understanding of the criminal justice system
- Emphasize the legal consequences of violating the law
SHOCK CLASS UPDATE: Class #20-1 (Spring, 2020) | Online Referral System is Closed:
