Business Security

Clay Community Connect (C3) is a new program intended to reduce crime and the fear of crime by building a private and public community crime fighting partnership and improve the quality of life within Clay County.  Please click the link here for detailed information, including ways to participate:

If your business has ever been the target of crime, you know the gut-wrenching feeling that follows and how violated owners and employees feel afterwards.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office is taking steps to increase community awareness by providing security advice and related services to businesses through a free Business Security Survey.

We can also increase patrol around your business when you are out of town.
