The office will hold an Open House and free pancake breakfast on August 14, 2021. The annual is event will show interested young adults the inside of the Arapahoe County Sheriff Office and its Coroner's Facility.

The event will also give you a tour of Maggot Art. Watch the K-9s in action and get into the action yourselves - climb on the SWAT vehicle and try the SWAT gear.

Grab the chance to pet the mounted unit horses and rare tours to the rest of the facilities, such as DEA helicopter, 911 dispatch tours, South Metro Fire Truck, Arapahoe Rescue Patrol, Wildland Fire Team, and Emergency Operation Center.

- Age 14-20,
- High school students or young adults,
- 2.5 GPA,
- Ability to volunteer 10 hours per month, and
