    • LASD Polygraph
    • FBI and the US Army
    • LASD Special Enforcement Bureau (The Sheriff’s version of SWAT)
  • IMG_7724Presentations from folks like

Deputy Jake and Deputy Jeff spend the school year lecturing kids about safety and drugs, but they enjoy STAR Camp because its a great chance to just have fun with the campers. The other adults at the camp are Deputy Sheriff’s from STAR and other local LASD Units.
