In a continued effort to extend community-oriented policing, Constable Sherman Eagleton has partnered with leaders of The Varnett School Northeast to help enhance understanding and foster trusting relationships between law enforcement, students, staff and parents.
Constable Eagleton is excited about working with the leadership and administration of The Varnett Public School because he believes open communication and positive interactions between the community and police should be established and cultivated at a young age.
The community service division of his agency will be teaching the L.E.T.S. (Law Enforcement Teaching Students) program. Deputies will help build positive self-concept, good decision making and recognizing and coping with peer pressure.
The L.E.T.S program is not only designed to enhance students' basic knowledge relating to the dangers of alcohol, gangs and drugs but student engagement and learning will center on the programs six pillars of success: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.
