Deputy Phil Program

The Adams Count Sheriff’s participates in the Deputy Phil & Pals Program which teaches elementary school Deputy Phil 1.jpgchildren about such topics as stranger-danger, school bus safety, bullying (“Walk away, don’t spoil your day” and respect for others) and Safety, including gun safety (Eddie Eagle).  

Through the use of puppets, magic tricks, and activity booklets, children are taught that any time there is trouble to go to a deputy or the closest police officer or call 911 to stay safe. The program is designed for school children in Kindergartner through Fourth Grade and is available to all public elementary schools in Adams County.  

Any parent or teacher interested is asked to contact the Adams County Sheriff at (717) 337-9829 and arrange for a visit from Deputy Phil and Pals.
