The Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward graduated it’s first Class of the Sheriff’s Foundation Classroom – a group of 60 Girl Scouts on Saturday, May 14, 2016. The Sheriff’s Foundation Classroom gave Girl Scouts the hands-on opportunity to wear bomb squad equipment and to drive a bomb robot. “Everything we do in this agency is about making life better for young people,” said Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel at the graduation ceremony. As part of the Sheriff’s Foundation Classroom, the Girl Scouts also attended a K-9 training event in November, a Fire Rescue training event in March, and this final event with the Bomb Squad. “These young ladies had exclusive access to BSO law enforcement and fire rescue. They had a front seat educational experience to learn more about BSO’s first responders,” said Sheriff’s Foundation Chairman Juan Carlos Arias.
