Sheriff Kenneth C. Fries will receive a $2,500.00 donation from the Three Rivers Federal Credit Union at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 12, 2008. The money will be used for the Allen County Sheriff’s Cadet Program.
Fourteen Allen County residents have graduated from the Cadet Program thus far. The Cadet class meets every Monday night for 6 weeks from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. to enhance the partnership between the Sheriff’s Department and the youth of Allen County. The Sheriff’s Department hopes to reduce crime by enlightening the youths about the overall mission of law enforcement.
Class attendees received an overview of what the Sheriff’s Department does and how it operates. Training sessions include: Emergency Vehicle Operations, Firearms Training, CPR Certification and Handcuffing Techniques. After graduation the cadets will be required to volunteer 4 hours per month with the Sheriff’s Department.
