BATON ROUGE- Through the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office Junior Deputy program teens get the change to learn about different aspects of law enforcement.

Teens ages 12 through 18 will learn the functions of each respective agency. According to the EBRSO, the Junior Deputy program was first formed in 1948 under Sheriff Bryan Clemmons and was once again implemented in 2008.
