Crime Prevention & Safety
About Crime Prevention & Safety
Simple steps are often the best crime deterrents, and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office is dedicated to educating residents about how to prevent themselves from becoming crime victims. We strongly encourage residents to be proactive about crime prevention. The Sheriff's Office has a dedicated team of certified crime prevention deputies whose sole purpose is to work with citizens to prevent crime. Through on-site visits, phone calls, special events, child safety activities and other opportunities, these deputies share vital information with the public on how to keep crime at bay.
Crime Prevention deputies are available to attend community meetings and events to educate on various timely topics and address safety concerns on the following topics:
- Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)
- General crime prevention and personal safety tips
- Identity theft
- Safety and crime prevention for retail businesses
- Safety in your place of worship
- Safety tips for senior citizens
