Students in the Rockdale County Sheriff Department’s Choose2Change program are getting an up-close look this summer at what happens when people make the wrong decisions.

Last weekend, the students spent the night in jail to experience life as an inmate. They received uniforms, bed linens and a toothbrush. The sheriff called the program a success, saying the kids assured trainers they would not be returning.

“The CHOOSE2CHANGE program is an early intervention program that is designed to provide youths ages 11-17 a curriculum of classes in order for them to see that certain choices they are making could land them in trouble, in jail, or worse,” said Sheriff Eric Levett.

Participation in the program is voluntary. Parents are asked to determine if there is behavior in their child that would deem them appropriate for this type of program.
