Community Outreach Centers
Sheriff Carmine Marceno encourages his team to constantly engage with the community. He created the Community Response Unit, comprised of certified and civilian employees, to tackle this initiative full-time. This diverse unit has spearheaded the implementation of Sheriff Carmine Marceno’s Community Outreach Centers throughout the county.
These centers play an intricate part in bridging the gap between law enforcement and the community it serves. Opportunities for residents, visitors, community groups, civic organizations, and businesses to meet and converse with agency members are available at these locations. Additionally, outreach centers give the public a chance to interact with agency assets for purposes of demonstration and presentation.
These centers also provide a venue to educate residents and visitors on topics such as crime prevention, personal safety, avoiding frauds and scams, and other law enforcement related matters. One popular program hosted by these centers is the Sheriff’s Youth Activity League’s Teen Driver Challenge.
Lee County Sheriff’s Office Deputies often use these facilities for ancillary purposes such as paperwork, area checks, and attending special events.
This outreach center is located at the Brotherhood of Heroes Museum and Resource Center.
