Jim Allen Fifth Graders Decorate Escambia Sheriff’s Office Christmas Tree

December 4, 2019

Fifth grade students from Jim Allen Elementary School decorated the Christmas tree in the lobby of the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday.

It’s an idea that started with Jim Allen’s school resource officer. Over the last few weeks , the students worked to create the handmade ornaments to trim the tree.

“We’ve got some folks that the holidays are a huge deal at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office. They are people that, guess what, reach out to our community. So, when we can draw the school systems into this, itjust  makes it that much better,” Sheriff Morgan says.

This was the first year students have decorated the ECSO tree, but Morgan says they will invite the students back year.

The Jim Allen students also got a behind the scenes tour of the ECSO including the dispatch center, and they also saw a K-9 demonstration and met the people and horses of of the mounted posse.
