Investigator Torie Jumper and Sheriff Tolar spoke last Thursday to a combined group of young people, Boys & Girls Club and Youth participating in NEMCC Career Development Academy Summer Camp.  We fingerprinted all the youth and provided them with an identification kit.  The remaining portion of the program was  spent sharing our experiences in Law Enforcement and how rewarding a career in Law Enforcement can be.  We explained the requirements of getting into Law Enforcement and the different fields available on the local level.  There were nine of the youth that expressed an interest in Law Enforcement as a career.  The nine young men and woman were challenged by Sheriff Tolar to follow their dream, by first completing their education as well as always make good choices that will positively influence their lives.  He gave each one, a Prentiss County Sheriff's Office Challenge Coin as a reminder of their commitment to becoming Law Enforcement Officer.
On Weds night June 20 the Youth of New Lebanon Free Will Baptist Church visited the night shift at the Prentiss County Justice Center.  They brought refreshments and such to the Deputies, Booneville Police Officers, Dispatchers, Jailors and 911 Dispatchers saying thank you for your service.  Deputy Brandon Slack and Investigator Wesley Graves gave the youth group a tour of the building and talked to the kids about their respective jobs and about serving others in general.  We were very blessed by the groups visit.
Thursday June 7th some 40 children from the Jumpertown summer after school program visited the Prentiss County Justice Center for a tour. Investigator Torie Jumper and Deputy Shane Scott spoke to the kids about law enforcement and being community helpers. The children toured the building.  The kids made a poster and presented it to the department, thanking the Officers for their service.




Recently Deputy Sheriff Tyler Reese was presented with an Award of Appreciation and Recognition by our local AOP Program Director.  AOP is an Adolescent Offender Program which works with local youth offenders.  Tyler works with this program and it's participating youth in an effort to get their lives on the right track and we appreciate all he does.  The award presentation took place at Hopewell Church in Rienzi during a luncheon in which other Local Law Enforcement Officers were invited to eat and interact with the kids.



Pictured below are area youth and members of the Booneville/Prentiss County Boys and Girls Club with Prentiss County Deputies Tyler Reese and Aaron Stolz all of whom participated in Teen OP Awareness 2017 that was held at Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Rienzi. The Deputies spent time with the youth in an effort to establish positive relationships between our youth and Law Enforcement.  The kids divided up into Basketball teams that were coached by the Deputies.  This was just part of the days activities.  We value our youth and want to do everything in our power to promote our area youth and ensure that they become productive citizens.






On Thursday Oct. 26th the Marietta 4th Grade visited the Prentiss County Justice Center and the Prentiss County Courthouse.  Investigator Torie Jumper, Police Captain Eddie Green and Sheriff Randy Tolar talked to the children about Law Enforcement then toured the Justice Center visiting the Courtroom, 911, the Police Department, the Jail, Justice Court and the Sheriff's Department.  This was a very well behaved group of kids which reflects positively on their teachers and parents.  The students asked very intelligent questions when given the opportunity to ask questions about the Justice system.  My staff was very impressed with the maturity of these students.  Circuit Clerk Mike Kelly led the students in a tour of the Main Courthouse and Offices. 










 Weds Oct. 25th Prentiss County Investigator Torie Jumper and Sheriff Randy Tolar visited with the Pre K students at Jumpertown.  We talked to the children about all kinds of safety hints and tips and reassured the kids that Law Enforcement Officers are their friends.

     Today,05/08/2012 we returned four picnic tables to the Hills Chapel School that were in disrepair and had been refurbished by the inmates at The Prentiss County Work Center.  We were at Hills Chapel School a week or so ago for the DARE Graduation and noticed several of the picnic tables were in bad shape.  I asked Mr Marshal if he would let us come and get the tables and allow our inmates to fix them.  The inmates did an outstanding job and are to be commended.  The photo is an example of one of the four tables.

    A main goal of the Prentiss County Sheriff's Office is to be a Community Oriented Policing Agency, working within every community implementing programs and projects that make our communities safer, by encouraging citizen participation.

The Prentiss County Drug Awareness Project is a program that was started in mid 2000.  Members of the Sheriff's Office, DARE Program and former Drug Users go into Churches, Civic  Organizations and other gatherings of people, educating them (on hands) about drugs, the effects of drugs and what to look for in our children's behavior that might be indicators that there is a drug problem.

The Prentiss County Sheriff's Office has been instrumental in linking Substance Abusers with rehabilitation services and programs in an effort to reduce the recidivism rate.  A frequently used Rehabilitative Service is located in Tuscumbia Alabama called Restoration Ranch.  The Sheriff has assisted numerous families find help for their loved ones at facilities such as this one.  Restoration Ranch is a 10-12 month long Faith based treatment program.  Restorartion Ranch is a division of Mission teen, Inc. , telephone 256-381-0930. with several other facilities under different names across the Southeast United States.

There is no charge for any part of the program.  However, transportation fees will be charged for trips to the doctor, court, etc.  And thse are the responsibility of the person for whom the service is rendered.

If your church or civic organization would like people from the center to come and speak, or give testimony, simply call 256-381-0930 and we would be more than happy to arrange a visit.

Prentiss County is now the hub of a very successful Drug Court.  The Drug Court is an alternative to Prison, focusing on the addiction and changing lives.  Circuit Judge Jim Pounds oversees the Drug Court along with his staff.
