Community Engagement

Our department coordinates and manages community engagement and outreach initiatives to raise awareness for the Sheriff’s Office various programs, policies, and priorities. We can help you set up a Neighborhood Watch program; speak to your organization, HOA, or community group about emergency preparedness, crime prevention, or frauds and scams; schedule a school event with Deputy Do Right or the K9 officers, or other topics of interest to residents. We keep in touch with our communities through various social media platforms, through our websites and our email.
