Contact the Public Affairs Office if you are interested having the Sheriff visit your organization, church or neighborhood association.

The Public Affairs Office provides “hands-on” service to the community. Representatives tour neighborhoods to gain insight about crime trends and work with other government agencies to address any problems that might be reported.

The Public Affairs Office can also assist if you’re interested in volunteering for many programs offered by the Sheriff’s Office to help people of all ages. You may learn more about these volunteer programs by clicking over to Volunteer Opportunities Section.
