FBI Child APP

The Scotland County Sheriff's Office Child ID app—the first mobile application created by the FBI—provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and other vital information about your children so that it’s literally right at hand if you need it. You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with a few clicks.

The app includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing. It features a password protection option to help keep your information safe and allows you to add pictures from your mobile phone’s image library. You can also zoom in and crop images prior to saving.

The app is available for download on iPhones through iTunes and on Android phones through Google Play.

 The Scotland County Sheriff's Office since 2015 has participated and encouraged our children and you to "Bring Your Bible to School Day" which is a nationwide, student-led event that happens on the first Thursday of every October. This event empowers Christian students of all ages to take the lead in speaking God’s grace and truth into the culture around them by taking one simple step — bringing their Bible to school and talking about it with friends.

The event allows students to live out their faith in a positive, practical way. With that in mind, we’ve started the ‘Live It Challenge" as the next step from Bring Your Bible to School Day: The Live It Challenge are monthly challenges that will help students and families keep the movement going throughout the whole year!

This program's goal is to have the Sheriff’s Office Cruiser stuffed full of school supplies for Back to School.  Monetary donations will gladly be accepted as well. These items will go directly to the Back to School which will IS held in August at Scotland High School in collaboration with the Scotland County Branch NAACP # 5448. Our goal is to assist these

children in need of help so that their education does not have to suffer. Why? Because, EDUCATION comes first before SUCCESS in the dictionary, as well as in life. The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office wants our children to have one less reason to worry, and to be able to concentrate more on academics and this is one big way to do that with you help. While this event is centered on raising as much supplies as we can  it helps in building unity in the community.

This  program's  primary mission is to bring Christmas gifts to needy children who would not otherwise have them.  We achieve this by collecting donations then pairing children with Scotland County Sheriff’s Deputies for a memorable day in December. Deputies donate their own time to spend the evening shopping with a child. Special attention is given to each kid and they will walk away satisfied that their family will not want this Christmas.   Each child is given $100 to spend for Christmas.  Our children are chosen through a cooperative effort with the Scotland County Sheriff's Office and School District.  If you would like to make a personal or business donation to this program, please contact us.

 The Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T) program is a school-based, law enforcement officer-instructed classroom curriculum taught to fourth and sixth grade students in Scotland public schools.

The primary objective of the program is prevention. It is designed and intended as an immunization against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership.

G.R.E.A.T lessons focus on teaching life skills to students that help them avoid using delinquent behavior and violence to solve problems. G.R.E.A.T. deputies strive to build a bridge of understanding between youth, school personnel and law enforcement professionals. This collective effort will assist in reducing gang involvement, violence and overall juvenile delinquency. If you need further assistance contact us.

 The Internet can be wonderful for kids. They can use it to research school reports, communicate with teachers and other kids, and play interactive games.

But online access also comes with risks, like inappropriate content, cyberbullying, and online predators. Using apps and websites where kids interact, predators may pose as a child or teen looking to make a new friend. They might prod the child to exchange personal information, such as address and phone number, or encourage kids to call them, seeing their phone number via caller ID.

Parents should be aware of what their kids see and hear on the Internet, who they meet, and what they share about themselves. Talk with your kids, use tools to protect them, and keep an eye on their activities.  Check this site out now by clicking on the picture above.  If you need further assistance contact us.
