ALAMEDA COUNTY DSAL COMMUNITY CAPITALS POLICING PROGRAMS
(ALAMEDA COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE PROGRAM)
The Explorer experience is designed for youth and young adults ages 14 - 20 years old to get a taste of careers in law enforcement, as well as to understand more about what Sheriff’s Deputies do in the community.
Explorers learn citizenship, teamwork and leadership skills, improve their physical fitness, and serve the community at events like the Alameda County Fair, Raider Days, Eden Night Live and Urban Shield.
Explorers meet for 2 hours bi-weekly and one field trip a month during spring or fall sessions.
Over 120 of your neighbors complete the Explorer program every year, 3 have become ACSO employees and 10 have become ACSO Cadets.
Explorer participation looks great on your resume, college application, or job application!

Cadets will support the Sheriff’s Office in putting on events, participating in crime prevention activities such as neighborhood watch meetings, school and community group presentations, and Sheriff’s Office building tours; working with the Explorers program, and other tasks.
Cadets must be enrolled in college, studying law enforcement or related subject.
Sign up for a Residents' Academy to learn more about the work that the Sheriff’s Office does throughout the county and in your neighborhood.
Join your fellow residents in understanding patrolling, community-oriented policing, crime prevention, the jail and reentry system, and more. Residents' Academy also gives you the chance to discuss and work on the issues that you see facing your neighborhood.

Sheriff’s Deputies and parent volunteers team up to form a positive presence in the streets around Edendale Middle School, so that kids walking to and from school have a safe journey and connect with adults who care about them.
Sometimes life is stressful, complicated, or overwhelming. Young people can have issues with school attendance, acting out, fighting, using drugs or alcohol, or getting into conflicts at school or home.
The ACSO Youth & Family Services Bureau is here to help, with counseling that can work with kids and adults who live in Alameda County, at no cost or low cost. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. We accept Medi-Cal, many private insurances, and have an affordable sliding scale for fees. If you are a crime victim, you may also be eligible for free counseling through the Victim of Crime program.
