Community engagement and crime reduction go hand in hand. We work every day to establish and maintain positive citizen relationships, develop meaningful dialogue, and provide a resource for crime prevention programs and services.
Our goal is to learn about community concerns and respond to them before they become a serious problem. By developing programs to increase the community’s understanding of how law enforcement operates in our community, public confidence is built and we develop a spirit of mutual cooperation and trust that benefits everyone.
The Clay County Police Athletic League is a youth sports and activities program operated by deputies of the Clay County Sheriff’s Office and dozens of volunteers. The Clay County Sheriff’s Office Explorer Program also falls under Community Affairs and it is a great opportunity for teens who aspire to enter the realm of law enforcement.
Our members also participate in Sheriff’s NET, community events, safety fairs, National Night Out, Coffee With A Cop, and many other activities around Clay County.To learn more about all of our programs, please contact the Clay County Sheriff’s Office at (904) 264-6512 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coffee and Conversation
Sheriff Michelle Cook started a new initiative in 2021 called Coffee and Conversation, which is a program aimed to provide an avenue for the community to speak one-on-one with the agency’s leading member. Church/community groups, businesses, or organizations are welcome to request an in-person, COVID-19-sensitive or virtual Coffee and Conversation meeting with the sheriff. Just fill out the form!
