Consumer & Environmental Protection Lead DDA Douglas Poston attended and represented the District Attorney's Office at an event Friday to promote and support the Chino High School Law, Justice, and Public Service Academy.
The program was designed to fully represent careers in the law, justice and public service sectors.
"When time permits, I always try to take advantage of any chance we as prosecutors have to empower and inspire our next generation of leaders to reach their goals, especially those who are pursuing a career in public safety," said DDA Poston.
During the event, DDA Poston provided the 8th grade students with a brief glimpse of a “Day In The Life” of a career in the DA’s Office and encouraged them to consider careers in law and related fields.
The Law, Justice, Public Service sector provides a foundation for secondary students in government, public administration, public safety, and legal services. Students engage in a common core, state standards based instructional program that integrates academic and technical preparation. The focus is on career awareness, career exploration, and skill preparation in this industry. For more information about the LJPS Academy click here.
