Safe Communities

Well-trained law enforcement protects and connects with the community. This entails implementing programs to promote positive interactions, while also being ready to respond at a moment's notice. This region has seen a sharp reduction in crime over the last 10 years.

Security and safety in Sumter County is a community effort as law enforcement and citizens rely on each other to prevent crime and to solve crime. Sumter County Sheriff’s Office partners with local schools, churches, and organizations to discuss security and safety through numerous programs and outreach projects. Through these interactions, our deputies build rapport and trust with citizens who feel comfortable voicing their concerns and providing tips, and who are confident that we are working hard for them."
