Monmouth County Sheriff Meets with CNHS Law & Public Service Students

Students in the Law and Public Service Magnet Program recently had the opportunity to learn more about the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office from Sheriff Shaun Golden.

Sheriff Golden stopped by Colts Neck High School on January 8th to speak with the students. The sheriff provided the group with a history of the position and office of sheriff, along with a detailed overview of the different divisions the department contains.

The Law and Public Service Magnet Program is a rigorous program geared toward highly motivated students with demonstrated interests and abilities in history, politics, government, law, volunteerism, and leadership. Skills targeted for development include problem-solving, critical thinking, reading, and writing, oral communication, research, and organization. The values of citizenship, justice, and service serve as the foundation for academic study. Students study history as it relates to the development of the United States and the evolution of world societies and governments. Students explore political thought, ethical philosophy, and leadership theory. Special attention is given to New Jersey history and civic affairs. Skills and knowledge are enhanced by active experiences in volunteerism and public service on the school, local, state and national levels. Career opportunities are explored during externships in government offices, volunteer agencies, and law-related institutions.
