Message From Sheriff Washington
Summer is in full swing and the Sheriff’s Office is busy assisting other jurisdictions in addressing issues that are seriously hampering quality of life in our neighborhoods. You may have seen in recent media stories that our S.C.O.U.T. team is hitting the local streets pretty regularly. S.C.O.U.T. stands for Sheriff’s Community Organized Urban Team. S.C.O.U.T. officers coordinate with community leaders, neighborhood watch groups and other concerned volunteers to tackle things like abandoned cars, boats and other motorized units. They may speak with individuals about crimes that are occurring frequently. And often, officers are aslo on the road conducting patrols to reduce traffic violations and other hazards like street racing.
I believe that community policing in our neighborhoods is vital to public safety. Officers cannot be everywhere at once so we rely on a mutually beneficial interaction with our residents and business owners to keep us informed of potential or ongoing problems. The problems we face in our community can be addressed effectively if we stand together. That is the epitome of S.C.O.U.T. Having an organized team allows us to coordinate on what we can change and collaborate on changes that will positively impact our future.
Finally, we are hiring! The WCSO has to fill some 200 positions asap and we encourage you to reach out to anyone you know who is in need of work, seeking to make a job change or just wants to make a positive impact on the community as a leader in law enforcement.
