In addition to carrying criminal investigation caseloads as part of their obligation to the community they serve, deputies assigned to Community Policing actively participate in community events; as well as, conduct crime prevention programs in their assigned areas.
Initially, funding for the Community Policing initiative was provided by federal grants such as the Department of Justice "COPS" grant. Unfortunately, this funding no longer exists and we now depend on the individual local communities to subsidize the funding of these positions.
