SCIP is the type of non-profit that inspires me. The leadership team and volunteer base is thoughtful, professional, and immensely committed to our youth. Founder Mike Saigeon saw a need and built something from scratch to meet that need and that spirit if hardwork and innovation permeates through every program in the organization. SCIP is a model for the Sacramento area on strategies that create meaningful relationships between law enforcement and vulnerable young people, especially from communities of color, and is poised to expand that footprint to the regional and state level.

Our school has been fortunate enough to work with the Sheriff's Community Impact Program. Deputy Mike Saigeon has come out to the school to sponsor families for Christmas and his team came out to visit our campus.

The families who were able to receive support from the SCIP were so grateful for the wonderful opportunity. Excited students came to me after Winter Break and expressed their gratitude. It was touching to see the joy on their faces.

Recently, the SCIP came to our school for a "Cops and Kids" day. The students were overjoyed to see the officers, talk to them and spend lunch recess with them. Even our 7th & 8th grade students enjoyed the experience. Our students keep asking me when the officers will be back! They had a great time!

We are very appreciative to have such caring officers in our community! There needs to be more programs like this one!!!

The Sheriffs Community Impact Program is one of a kind in creating unique opportunities for youth that otherwise, would not exist. I have had aspirations to launch a program for young skateboarders for years (a scarce thing for the skate community) and SCIP gave me the opportunity to make my dream become a reality. Because of this, young skateboarders are feeling a momentum of support from their community in Sacramento; some for the first time ever. Thank you SCIP for supporting kids and young adults with unique passions!

SCIP has been a great resource for our middle school. This program has worked with several of our students on a variety of interventions. Will Rogers has been in contact with Deputy Saigeon who has offered help and support to several students.

I am a member of Carmichael Kiwanis. So many clubs like ours are concerned about kids, youth and young adults blossoming into good citizens. Sacramento California has a proactive Sherriff with a great leader. Mike Saigeon leads the SCIP PROGRAM for Sheriff Jones. SCIP HAS CHANGED YOUNG LIVES FROM CRIME TO GOOD STUDENTS AND GOOD CITIZENS. Many officers have spent their own time in a mireade of 100's of programs which help troubled kids change theirs ways of thinking from crime to good , healthy , productive citizens . As you know it costs 60k a year for each imprisoned person. We are seeing proactive cops changing youth, convincing many to attend school and do well with their classes and develop good habits.

SCIP has been instrumental in helping the youth of Sacramento find a place in society that doesn't involve criminal activity. Their ability to reach at-risk youth and provide early intervention through positive law enforcement contact has changed countless lives.

SCIP is a unique non-profit program, in that local law enforcement and other volunteers within the community work with youth in the Sacramento community to build relationships, mentor, and provide alternative type programs after school. Being readily available to counsel and offer various activities, generally free of charge allows children in any type of socioeconomic situation get to build skill sets and participate in activities they may not have the chance to do. Going on field trips, participating in community service, and truly getting to know the person behind the badge are other positive aspects provided by this program.
