Thirty three incoming high school seniors from public high schools in Hillsborough County were selected to participate in the academy. This weeklong experience enabled each student to be exposed to principles that enhanced their ability to be a successful and responsible citizen. The experience was full of activities and examples of leadership to prepare these students for their school work and for their future careers. The week's activities included guest speakers, hands-on team building exercises and visits to the HCSO's Marine Unit, the Walter C. Heinrich Practical Training Site, the George E. Edgecomb Courthouse and the Florida Sheriffs Association Youth Ranch in Safety Harbor. The weeklong experience culminated in a graduation ceremony at the Falkenburg Road Jail Assembly Room. Upon completion of the academy, students received a $1000 scholarship. The Sheriff's Rising Stars Academy was funded through the Sheriff's Law Enforcement Trust Fund. The money in the fund comes from the seized and forfeited assets of criminals and criminal organizations.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office cares about the community we serve and firmly believes that criminals should pay to help make it better.  For these reasons, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has made available funds which were seized from criminal activity to put back into building our community. We are currently accepting grant applications for up to $1,500.00 to assist in this goal.

Directors or Officers from non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations are encouraged to apply for these funds which can be used for items to improve parks, community buildings, recreational areas, recreational equipment, and projects that encourage community involvement.  Monies must be used for tangible items, not intangible items.  It should be noted that applications which place an emphasis on community involvement will receive special consideration.

Here's a recipe for fun: fill up on pizza and cupcakes; hide some candy-filled Easter eggs; then let the kids loose. That's exactly what deputies from Patrol District III did recently at the George Jenkins Boys & Girls Club in Town 'N Country. The reason: to see some children smile. Guess what? They did!

The Sheriff's Junior Deputies League has provided educational programs to the students of Hillsborough County for more than 40 years. This program includes topics ranging from the dangers of drugs, avoiding gangs, and shoplifting. Students even learn about the criminal court system by participating in a mock courtroom trial. The program culminates each year with the presentation of official badges and identification cards to the students.

The Junior Deputy Program is funded through annual donations from the community and funds requested by the Sheriff's Office through the Law Enforcement Trust Fund (LETF). This fund provides monies to the Junior Deputies League as a result of forfeited assets obtained from criminals and their illegal enterprises. As a result, the program operates without the help of any taxpayer money.

This year's winners were selected from an estimated 1,000 essays submitted to school principals throughout the county and narrowed to a field of 100 entries. Of the 100 entries, the ten winners here today were selected by the Contest Board for their outstanding essay written on the topic, "What being a Junior Deputy means to me."
