As criminal activities and threats continue to rapidly INCREASE, Sheriff's Offices nationwide are experiencing a dramatic DECREASE in funding. It's terrible timing for budget cuts!
At no other time in United States history has there ever been a greater need for law enforcement officers to be as equipped and prepared as right now! In order to successfully fight and solve crimes, protect and respond to community emergencies, officers must have advanced levels of training, as well as the latest equipment in communications, technology, and safety gear.
Limiting a Sheriff's ability to provide officers with vital lifesaving equipment, essential resources, and advanced education and training opportunities jeopardizes the personal safety of the officers, as well as the safety of the entire community.
A. Ill-equipped, or ill-prepared officers
B. Highly trained, skilled, and well-equipped officers
24 hours a day, seven days a week, the men and women of your local Sheriff's Office are dedicated to protecting and serving your community. Your sheriff needs the support of local business owners and civic leaders, like yourself, who understand the importance of maintaining quality public safety services.
Community partnership programs are an ideal way to help Sheriffs maintain an efficient office and improve the effectiveness of your county's emergency response services.
