“SHERIFF AIMS TO “BUILD BETTER MEN” – Joseph D. Lohman, Cook County Sheriff, oversees several programs meant to reduce the growing juvenile delinquency problem. The problem is confined mainly to teen-aged boys and Sheriff Lohman said that is where he is directing most of his efforts. Although open to any boy, his “Devil Dog Teens”, “G.I. Juniors”, and “Cook County Sheriff’s Police Squadron” programs were developed with a mind to help those unfortunate boys who might be prone to a life of crime. The Sheriff told reporters, “We are giving boys a chance to improve their lives, to become better men than they might otherwise”.
