SARATOGA COUNTY YOUTH BUREAU
CONTACT US • MISSION • ABOUT
The Sheriff’s Teen Council’s 2016-2017 meetings ended with a tour of the vehicles, equipment and technology available to the department. Each component is readily accessible to assist in every Saratoga County emergency or safety situation. Over the course of the year the students have gained information from guest speakers on hot topics such as drugs, suicide, active shooter response, project lifesaver and positive peer pressure. They voiced their community and school concerns, asked many questions, as well as, shared their opinions. This forum allows youth, acting as a spokesperson from their school district, to interact with law enforcement in a non-confrontational or judgmental manner, surrounded and supported by peers from all over Saratoga County. We look forward to welcoming a larger council in the Fall of ’17. Contact the Youth Bureau if you, or someone you know, may be interested in participating.
