The Cobb County Police Department has started a program that allows high school students to work side-by-side with Cobb County Police Chief Michael Register. The student takes part in daily meetings and planning sessions and observes the operations of the police department. The first participant was Jenae Gray of North Cobb High School. Here’s the police department’s Instagram post of Chief Register with Ms. Gray:
Jenae Gray of North Cobb High School was the first participant in the police department’s new Chief of Police for the Day program for high school students in the county. The program allows the student to work side-by-side with Chief Mike Register and his Command Staff. The student also takes part in daily meetings, planning sessions, training scenarios, and the day-to-day operations of the Cobb County Police Department. The activities will provide the student with a better understanding of what a day in the life of a police chief is like. Thanks Jenae, you did an awesome job and we are very proud of you!
Captain Hite of the Cobb County Police Department, who worked with Chief Register on the program, told the Courier in an email, “The program is an initiative by Chief Register to develop greater communication with our communities youth and help them gain better understanding of not only the police department, but county government as well. Ms. Grey was the first student chosen.”
