Community Outreach is one of the top priorities of the Brooke County Sheriff’s Department. Informing the citizens of Brooke County in order to make neighborhoods safer, reducing crime and addressing other areas of concerns are some of the reasons we provide community outreach.
Prevention Resource Officers are often asked to speak to children at local schools and day care centers to inform them of the duties of an officer as well as other safety related topics such as Bullying, Stranger Danger, The Dangers of Drug Use and The Risks of Social Media. It is a great opportunity for children to become more familiar and comfortable around an officer.
Deputies are also available to meet with groups such as Senior Centers and Neighborhood Watch groups to discuss things such as Identity Thefts, Scams, Property Crimes.
If you are interested in having Sheriff Palmer or another Deputy speak to your community about ways to proactively fight crime, contact my main office at (304) 737-3660.
