Reviews for Sheriff's Community Impact Program

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.

My boys really enjoyed participating in the SCIP. They learned a lot from the activities. It challenged them, helped them to build confidence and encouraged them to make better choices. Deputy Saigeon is a positive role model. He is very supportive not only to the kids but also to the parents. As a single mom I really did appreciate his support and words of encouragement. :) I am thankful to everyone working with SCIP. Your hard work and dedication has made a positive difference in our life and the community.

This unit represents it's name to the fullest. In a world and community that needs positivity, this unit represents positive growth. This unit deserves to grow for the sake of peace, especially with helping to raise youth becoming productive adults.

When it comes to creating community wide change the Sheriff's Community Impact Program leaves no stone unturned. Whether it's creating safe play environments for kids, supporting sports or dance activities or developing community connections that strengthen the fabric of the community, SCIP is a pillar. the relationship that law enforcement has in any area can support health and wellbeing and that's what SCIP brings to the Arden-Arcade community

I've watched this program grow from a humble start to a program with a huge positive impact on our community's youth. They reach out across ages, sexes and cultures to help our youth learn how to be productive, fulfilled young adults. I'm very grateful for Michael Saigeon and other's vision and total, complete dedication. Their energy, commitment and passion are boundless.

I write about my community for a local publication. That is how I got to know Michael Saigeon and the Sheriff's Community Impact Program.Their mission is to foster productive citizens by engaging youth in dynamic community programs

There are a lot of folks out there with good intentions and big hearts who want to help our youth. But they don't always have the wisdom, intelligence and organization needed to sustain an effort like this. Michael and his crew do. They not only built this program, they did all the right things necessary for highly successful engagement with our youth . The variety of ways they reach young men and women and offer them alternatives is incredibly impressive. Those of us in the Arden Arcade Community who support this program know that our contributions of time and money will be used wisely and for the most benefit possible.

One only has to look at the faces of the youth attending the wide range of character-building yet engaging activiites to know they are changing lives. I know it hasn't been an easy job to build this nonprofit. Michael and the Sheriff's Department started it when the ecoomy was pretty bad. But I really appreciate his vision, passion, and commitment to changing lives. I plan to donate to their fundraiser today. It's one nonprofit I know will use every cent to help where it is needed most, our youth.
