Shasta County Sheriff’s Kids Corner
The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office is committed to keeping kids safe. The links found on this page are here to help kids learn how to be safe and remain drug-free.
D.A.R.E. is designed to strengthen the influence of the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program in Shasta County. The main purposes of the D.A.R.E program are to prevent drug abuse, gang involvement and violence among youth and to build a positive relationship between the police and the youth of our community. If you are in 7th or 8th grade and would like to participate in this year’s D.A.R.E. camp contact the Youth Violence Prevention Council at (530) 244-7194.
I’m McGruff the Crime Dog – world-famous for my advice on how to stop crime before it happens, and for my great sense of humor. But seriously, my job is to help people, especially kids, learn how to be safe and make their neighborhood safer.
Something else you should know about me is that I go all over the country to talk to people about how they can take a bite out of crime. So if you see me in your town, come on up and say hi. You can recognize me by my tan trench coat – I never go anywhere without it.
