Community Resource & Crime Prevention

The purpose of the Community Resource and Crime Prevention Sergeant is to establish proactive community partnerships and exemplify principles of community-oriented policing. The Sergeant proactively engages in community partnerships and develop personalized strategies and tailors them to meet the unique needs of each community to reduce crime and improve the quality of life. The Sergeant develops and implements proactive and preventative law enforcement strategies that will directly impact the efforts to reduce crime and disorder.

Child ID Kit / Fingerprint

One of the most important tools for law enforcement when searching for a missing child is an up-to-date, good quality photo along with descriptive information. A Child ID kit (fingerprint card and information) is a simple yet effective tool to help families maintain current photos of and descriptive information about their children.

Citizens Academy

Our Academy will present a wide range of topics and demonstrations similar to what your Sheriff's Deputies receive. By presenting this program, we hope to provide a broad educational experience which will acquaint attending citizens with the mission of sheriff's personnel and the requirements of law to which deputies must conform while carrying out their prescribed duties.

Citizens Well Check

Seniors who participate in this FREE program are automatically checked on by phone three days a week. An automated call with a prerecorded message will be made at the same times each day.

Community Surveillance Partner

One of the most valuable resources for solving crimes and catching criminals is having video footage. Today, more and more citizens and businesses are installing private security cameras to help protect the inside and outside of their property. As a citizen or business owner, you may not be aware that your cameras may have unknowingly captured valuable footage that can help solve crimes and apprehend criminals. The purpose of the Community Surveillance Partner Program is to enlist the general public, homes and businesses alike, to register with the Sheriff's Office if they have a security camera system. Think of it as the neighborhood watch of the 21st century, enlisting the use of technology to fight crime in our community. Your security cameras lookout for not only your property but for your neighbors as well. The Sheriff's Office will not have direct access to your system. The cameras and what they capture remain yours and yours alone. Registering your system says that you are willing to help rid your neighborhood of crime and willing to provide video from your security cameras upon request in the event of a crime in your area. The Sheriff's Office will not share registrant's information with the general public.

Community Watch

Community Watch is a Crime Prevention program that involves citizens working with law enforcement agencies to reduce crime and victimization in their communities. It involves:

  • Citizens protecting themselves and their property by using common sense crime prevention practices
  • Neighbors getting to know each other, watching out for each other and acting on or reporting suspicious activities
  • Citizens working with groups, community leaders, and, more importantly, law enforcement agencies to make entire communities safe and free from crime

Citizen Alert, Neighborhood Watch, Block Watch, or Community Watch

The names may differ, but the idea is the same. Neighbors looking out for each other.

Honor Guard

In 2005, the first six Randolph County Deputies graduated from a mandated training course for Honor Guard duties and procedures. This marked the official beginning of the Randolph County Sheriff’s Honor Guard. 

The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard is a specialized team of deputy volunteers employed by the Sheriff’s Office. Honor Guard assignments are typically ceremonial in nature. These assignments can include but are not limited to, funerals, graduations, community events, and parades. Members of the Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard are selected based on the candidate’s excellent decorum, professionalism, discipline and, excellent standing with the agency. 

The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard was unofficially formed following the untimely, line-of-duty death of Deputy Toney Summey on the 27th day of April in the year 2003. Following Deputy Summey’s death, several deputies volunteered to assist with the ceremonial duties of honoring their fallen comrade. Following this incident, it was apparent to former Sheriff Litchard Hurley that there was a need for a professionally trained team of deputies that could conduct these ceremonial duties when needed.

Place of Worship Security & Safety Training

Informed, alert communities – including clergy, lay leaders, congregants and visitors to places of worship – play a critical role in keeping our nation safe. 

There are nearly 400 places of worship in Randolph County. Over the last several years, places of worship have been the target of violent, life-changing acts. The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office offers security training and advisement to our places of worship to help prevent and deter violent acts. This training uses scenarios and discussion to encourage ideas on protection. North Carolina laws, such as the use of deadly force, are presented and discussed. A walk-through survey of the church is conducted and we discuss areas of easy access and other points within the church. Target-hardening guidance and recommendations can be provided for reasonable measures of safety to confront various threats and emergencies that places of worship may face during and after the hours of worship. The training is free to any place of worship.
