The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and the Bel Air High School Corrections Program have expanded their joint effort to assist adolescents’ transition into service-minded adults by expanding into the Law Enforcement Communications Field. EPSO Communication Specialists are responsible for maintaining contact between Sheriff’s Office personnel, the public, and other law enforcement or fire agencies.
