We enlist the active participation of citizens in cooperation with our agency to reduce the opportunity for crime to occur in their communities.
Deputies in this division assist communities in organizing their own individual community watch groups. Residents are asked to be active in Community Watch, to be alert to suspicious vehicles or people in their neighborhoods and most importantly, report anything they see which is out of the ordinary. We encourage individuals in the community watch groups to participate in operation identification and offer security surveys of their homes. These residents who actively participate are our extra "eyes" and "ears" for the Sheriff's Office. As Sheriff Blackwood says "If you see something, say something".
