EOE/Drug Free Workplace Thirteen third grade students will be sworn in as "Sheriff for a Day" this week and they didn't even have to campaign. The event is part of the Junior Deputy program, taught to all third grade students in the thirteen Troup County Elementary Schools. "I knew it was election year but I just didn't expect to have thirteen people who all wanted my job," Sheriff Donny Turner joked while preparing for the visit. "Actually, you never know. One of these students may, one day, be law enforcement officers or even the Sheriff of Troup County." ALMOST ONE THOUSAND and two hundred students took part in the Junior Deputy program during the current school year. The third graders were taught about safety and drugs. "We feel good about going into the third grade classes and talked to these kids about drugs and gangs, tell them about gun safe- ty and even throw in a little bit about bicy- "We feel good about going into the third grade classes..." cle safety. It's a good program ad it gives the kids a positive law enforcement role model as well." Students who take part in the Junior Deputy program receive a badge after they are sworn in and a work book which they use during the meetings. One student from each school is then chosen to be "Sheriff for a Day" "THIS IS A TIME that all of the kids look forward to", Turner says. "We pick them up in a patrol car and bring them to the office. They get a tee a, ID card, a tour of the jail al visit the courthouse and 9-I get a free lunch courtesy d King at Lee's Crossing. We !
