The need for kids to receive quality, meaningful guidance from dedicated leaders has never been greater. Therefore,“Do-Right” instruction will be provided by trained representatives from the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office. Programs may be presented by a sworn deputy, a civilian employee, or a Volunteer in Protection (V.I.P.). Use of the expertise of a variety of employees within the Y.C.S.O. will provide the latest and most dynamic methods of training. One of the key aspects of the “Right by Kids” program will be its flexibility. We will offer instruction to children within several age ranges. Younger children, grades k-3 will learn valuable lessons about making healthy choices, protecting themselves against bullying and improving self-esteem. Messages about drugs will be presented using methods and demonstrations suitable to their age group. Older children will also receive instruction tailored to fit their maturity level. This program will not be exclusive to schools. Sheriff Waugh’s “Right by Kids” program is available to youth groups, clubs, and church organizations.
You may contact our Community Action Coordinator Scott Reed for further information on having Deputy Do Right visit your organization. E-mail Sheriff@co.yavapai.az.us or call him at (928) 777-7253.
The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is proud to have created an innovative child safety education program intended to provide kids with information and ideas to keep them safe, healthy and drug free. Professionals from the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, along with our program mascot, Deputy Do-right, visit Yavapai County schools and other youth groups with these important messages. Children today are confronted at earlier ages with issues regarding illegal drugs. One important aspect of the“Right by Kids” program is to reach young children with age appropriate messages about these harmful drugs.
Here are a few things PARENTS should know…
