From collecting items for sick and shut-in seniors and visiting local elementary schools talking about public safety to escorting families for military funerals, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office places a high value on community involvement. Some of the community programs we participate in and support include:
The nation’s largest organization dedicated to empowering students to stay in school and on a path to a brighter future.

Do The Right Thing-Charlotte-Mecklenburg is a non-profit agency dedicated to recognizing, celebrating and rewarding youth, who, in the face of overwhelming odds, exhibit character and integrity.
If asked, all involved with our mission will tell you… “It’s all about the kids and Hometown Heroes would not be what it is today without every individual or business that volunteers, contributes and supports our mission.”
