The Camarillo Police Department is excited to announce a new program, “Study with a Cop.” This program is a partnership with the City of Camarillo, the Camarillo Police Department, and the Camarillo Library. Commencing Tuesday, August 30, 2016, the School Resource Officer (SRO) from Rancho Campana High School will transition from his SRO duties to be at the Library after school Monday through Friday from 3 to 5 p.m. The deputy will interact with the youth of our community on a more informal and educational level. Weekly guest speakers are planned to educate our youth about potential careers and how to engage in community service. The deputy will provide mentorship, educate our youth regarding life skills, and will assist with job applications and resume preparation.
This is a very unique program and the only one of its kind, not only in Ventura County, but the entire state. The collaborative efforts of the Camarillo Police Department, the City of Camarillo, and the Camarillo Library will enhance the lives of our youth and benefit many throughout Camarillo. There is no cost to the youth that want to participate and if you would like further information about this program for our youth, please contact our Community Resource Unit at 805-388-5131.
