(Imperial County receives an award)…It was presented by NACo.
The National Association of Counties presented Imperial County with an Achievement Award. The awards honor innovative, effective county government programs that enhance services for residents. NACo recognized the Imperial County Sheriff’s Office Day Reporting Center. Sheriff’s officials say Education has been proven to be one of the most effective methods in breaking the cycle of criminal activity. The In and Out Program provides both inmates and community members an opportunity to view each other as fellow students and eventually fellow community members. The awards will be presented at the NACo 2015 Annual Conference and Exposition July 10-13 in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina.
