The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office is accepting student registration for “criminal justice shadow day” on June 17.
The program, launched last summer, offers high school students an opportunity to spend time with professionals from various criminal justice agencies. It is open to current Sacramento County high school students and incoming ninth- through 12th-graders.
Based on their area of interest, students will be paired with prosecuting attorneys, defense attorneys, probation officers, law enforcement officers, investigators and judges for a first-hand look at the criminal justice process and the different roles within the system.
District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert and Crime Lab Director Jill Spriggs also with give a presentation on crime scene investigation, evidence collection and forensic science.
The program is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 700 H St., Sacramento. Space is limited, and students are encouraged to register early.
