Sheriff Provides Summer Camps for Youth

Sheriff Leon Lott is committed to keeping youth out of trouble and on the path to success. Sheriff Leon Lott states that while summer is a time of year we all look forward to; it is also a time youth offenses may rise due to restlessness or lack of activities to keep them occupied. All too often when kids are on summer vacation and have excessive free time they tend to make bad decisions due to peer pressure. This is why Sheriff Leon Lott is proud to offer a variety of summer camps for our youth to participate in throughout their time away from school.

Sheriff Leon Lott states that he will continue to make it one of his top priorities to provide educational and diversionary programs for the citizens of Richland County . The Sheriff adds that the Richland County Sheriff’s Department provides a variety of summer camps for youth of various ages.
