Career Day Brings Local Students to Sheriff’s Office

As part of a career outreach program, coordinated with the Inyo County Office of Education which includes college information provided by the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) and visits to various County departments, the Inyo County Jail offered tours to local high school students this week.  All tours commenced in the booking/intake area of the jail, where some of the inmate and workplace protocols were discussed; and concluded with a tour of the law library and classroom area, where inmates can take their GED or take life skills classes.  The ICJ tour is two-fold; students are able to see and hear what the responsibilities are for a career Correctional Officer at the Inyo County Jail, and they are reminded that illegal behavior has very real consequences.  The career-related trips also help high school seniors better understand local government, which ultimately helps them to become more informed citizens. This is an excellent program, and the Sheriff’s Office is grateful to provide career information to Inyo County’s young adults.
