"999 For Kids" website
In 1985, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the Department of Children and Family Services joined together and organized the "999 for Kids" Program. This program was developed to help physically and mentally challenged children throughout Los Angeles County who are victims of the most severe cases of child abuse, neglect and family violence.
The "999 for Kids" Program raises money for the purpose of purchasing special items and services for these children, i.e., sport wheelchairs, computers, special education classes, medically-oriented toys and games. Additionally, a Christmas Party sponsored by the Training Bureau and an Ice Cream Social Awards Ceremony sponsored by the Special Victims Bureau are held annually.
Through the generosity of the men and women of the Sheriff's Department and the community, financial support for the "999 for Kids" Program is accomplished through fund raising events throughout the Department.
