An Invitation to Celebrate Safe Communities with LCSO

October is National Crime Prevention Month, a time set aside for residents and law enforcement to spotlight the Celebrate Safe Communities initiative by joining together to promote community safety, crime prevention programs and relationship building between neighbors, police, and the public.

As part of the festivities surrounding Celebrate Safe Communities, the Lee County Sheriff's Office invites you to join us for an opportunity to “meet and greet” your crime prevention specialist, detectives and district personnel during a time set aside specifically for you. Come learn about our free crime prevention programs, pick up useful information to enhance your current crime prevention strategies, and help us strengthen our partnership with you by working alongside us to keep Lee County safe.

Check out your district’s time and location, then stop by and say hello.
