The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office Community Engagement Team consist of detention officers and deputies who bring different operational perspectives and diverse backgrounds which will provide a better overall experience for the citizens of Mecklenburg County.
Sheriff McFadden has a proven track record of community engagement and love for the service of others. As stated in the Task Force on 21st Century Policing; “Trust and legitimacy grow from positive interactions based on more than just enforcement interactions. Law enforcement agencies can achieve trust and legitimacy by establishing a positive presence at community activities and events, participating in proactive problem solving, and ensuring that communities have a voice and seat at the table working with officers.”
The mission of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office Community Engagement Team is to broaden partnerships between the community and the Sheriff’s Office, to educate the community on the Sheriff’s role and other initiatives going on our local criminal justice system, to provide outreach and to purposefully engage those that we serve to establish trust and confidence in your Sheriff’s Office.
