Troup County Sheriff’s deputy Matt Mayfield, a K9 handler, speaks to students at the annual Sheriff’s Academy for Youth at the sheriff’s office on Sam Walker Drive on Tuesday. This week, 27 students ages 11 and 12 registered for the weeklong camp and learned about the daily work of law enforcement officers, including K9 handling, jail operations, drug-resistance education and criminal investigations. Last week, 9 and 10 year olds also participated in the program.
