VIDEO: Probation Welcomes Back Chula Vista Students

Kids are back in school at Montgomery Elementary in Chula Vista, and they were welcomed back by men and women in uniform.

It’s a good opportunity for us to show that we’re working with the community, as far as teaching, coaching, mentoring our youth – so that they become successful in the community.

Adolfo Gonzales, Chief Probation Officer

The San Diego County Probation Department handed out apples, pencils and wristbands to the kids, letting them know that they were law enforcement and there to protect, but also to show that they were approachable.

The elementary school joins Lincoln Acres in National City and San Marcos Elementary as part of the Probation family.
