HLJ Students Sheriff For A Day

On May 15, two students and a staff member from H.L. Johnson Elementary School had the opportunity to take a private “Sheriff for a Day” tour of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office with Deputy John Delaura. The tour started with learning how to take fingerprints, then moved on to firearms unit where the students learned about ballistics, the chemistry unit with a focus on drug testing and the DNA unit. After leaving PBSO headquarters, the group visited the 10 horses of the PBSO Mounted Unit and also the PBSO’s two drug-sniffing pigs. The day also included a demonstration of how the PBSO uses its police dogs and a trip on one of the PBSO Marine Unit boats.
