Crime Prevention is in everyone’s best interest. Sheriff Chip W. Simmons believes that our community is built upon the strength of our citizens. The ECSO is involved in many community-based programs that inform our residents how to lessen the possibility of crimes against themselves, their homes, and their property. We directly address issues contributing to crime, delinquency, and disorder. This website has links to many of these programs and we encourage you to take a tour of our menu. Neighborhood Watch, security surveys, personal safety tips, and more are just a click away.
