Sheriff’s SEP program helps students’ needs

Several agencies are combining their efforts and assisting students in a new program coordinated by the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Jerod Clyde is explaining Student Empowerment Program (SEP) at community organizations’ meetings, such as Nov. 2 at Aurelia Kiwanis Club.

“I identified a need in the community and worked with Cherokee public schools at first to solve several issues. It is called the SEP team, and it includes the sheriff’s office, police departments, school faculty, principals, superintendents, school nurses and also court services, Mid-Sioux Opportunities and mental health providers,” said Clyde.
