The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office TAPS program strengthens communities by encouraging at-risk youth and law enforcement to work together. TAPS creates an environment where law enforcement and youth learn from each other, build relationships, and discuss better ways to manage adverse situations.

El Paso County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officers assigned to Clint ISD actively participate in the Teen And Police Service (T.A.P.S.) Academy. The nine-week academy is designed for at-risk youth who are partnered with mentor officers to discuss issues such as bullying, anger management, avoidance of gang life, drug usage, and conflict management and various other youth and law enforcement focused topics. Through these interactive sessions, students gained skills to make better and more positive decisions in their lives. 

The last TAPS Academy Graduation was held on August 10th, 2016.

The Sheriff’s Office TAPS program was featured on the U.S. Department of Justice (Community Oriented Policing Services) Website.
