Community Outreach

Our agency wants to connect with the people we serve and build relationships. We want the community to view us as a force for good and a resource for problem-solving. By our actions, attitudes, and behaviors, we hope to earn trust and respect. We are so much more than law enforcers; we are people who care about others and set out every day to provide service, safety, and security. Our Community Outreach efforts are demonstrations of our commitment to these ideals. They include:

 

  • Attending fairs, celebrations, parades, and community events. To request a deputy attend your function, select the link to submit your request.
     

  • Assisting other agencies with their programs, for example, helping the Department on Aging deliver meals to senior citizens.
     

  • Hosting groups who wish to tour our office and learn about our services. Select the link to submit your request.
     

  •   Partnering with groups such as SafeKids NC to minimize preventable childhood deaths.
             

  • Leveraging technology such as our DWI simulator to educate the community about the hazards of impaired driving.
