Deputy Apperson began the Dobbins Middle SchoolJunior Police Academy where he taught the students differentaspects of law enforcement after school throughout theschool year.

The students learned everything from criminal law andprocedure to defensive tactics techniques. Deputy Appersonalso solicited the assistance of the Hiram High School JROTCcadets to help him with this project.

Overall, 17 students completed the program and graduated onMay 22, 2017 at a ceremony held at Dobbins Middle School.Sheriff Gary Gulledge noted, “Having Deputies come in andimplement programs like this help bridge the gap between lawenforcement and our community. The more lives we can touchin a positive way, the more “good” we can do in ourcommunity.
