A little over three months ago, camera crews filled the Floyd County jail as a group of at-risk teens who have been in trouble for things ranging from drugs to theft to violence, came face to face with the reality of their choices.
The program is an on-going one at the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office but this time a camera crew from the Emmy nominated A&E nominated show “Beyond Scared Straight” were following the deputies and participating inmates as they gave the teens a big dose of reality and showed them the consequences of their life choices.
This is the first of two episodes that will air on A&E featuring the “Turning Point” program at the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies volunteer their time and participating inmates get nothing more than the satisfaction of possibly helping put an at-risk teen on the right path and helping them avoid the mistakes that they themselves have made.
This first episode of A&E’s "Beyond
Scared Straight," featuring the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office will air tonight at 10 p.m.
