Jr Sheriff’s Academy is a grant funded summer camp we host one week in July for 20 middle school students here at the sheriff’s office. Each day the students get hands on experiences with the different divisions within our department and learn what it takes to be a sheriff’s deputy here in Dickson County. The camp is mirrored after our Sheriff’s Citizens Academy for adults and has proven to be very popular each year. If you have a middle school student that would be interested in camp next year, please contact Sgt. Jennifer Caruthers via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Toy Patrol- Every Christmas our department, with the help of many citizens, host "Toy Patrol" for elementary school kids from our county. The kids are able to meet Santa and pick out a new coat, gloves, hat, and a few toys to help make their season brighter! This year is our 5th Annual Toy Drive. If you wish to donate a new, unwrapped toy, or make a monetary donation, stop by our office located at 140 County Jail Drive, or contact Cpl Jennifer Caruthers at email@example.com.
