PARTNERS IN PREPAREDNESS PROGRAM
The Partners in Preparedness Program was initiated by Sheriff's Office in 2006 in an effort to bring Law Enforcement and the general public together in a dynamic partnership, to enhance the security and quality of life of those we serve. Recognizing that Law Enforcement must work with the citizens, not just for them, the program is designed to reinforce that relationship by bringing training and education to the people.
The program encompasses classes ranging from Patrol Response to Active Shooter, to the 911 Cares program.
