Eighth graders job shadow at Bossier Sheriff’s Office
Eighth graders from Benton Middle School visited the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and Bossier Parish Courthouse today to job shadow and learn more about the law enforcement and the judicial process.
Dep. Beckie Fohl, crime scene investigator with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office, taught the eight students the proper method of lifting fingerprints from various surfaces, including glass, Styrofoam, paper, plastic and wood, as part of evidence collecting.
Judge Parker Self, district judge with the 26th Judicial District Court, visited with the students to explain to them the judicial process, including showing how the video arraignment process is conducted.
“The job shadow program allows these young people the opportunity to learn first-hand how law and order works,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington. “Who knows, maybe we’ll see them back one day working alongside our team in the Sheriff’s Office or in one of the courtrooms as a judge?”
