Six new volunteers and one new staff member recently became sworn officers for Court Appointed Special Advocates of San Luis Obispo County.

Juvenile Court Judge Linda Hurst performed the swearing-in ceremony for the new officers of the court.

CASA provided 30 hours of training — 15 of which were done online — and conducted thorough screening and background checks.

The volunteers will be assigned to a child or sibling group under the juvenile court’s jurisdiction due to abuse, neglect or abandonment.
