The Office of Community Relations continuously strive to maintain open communication between law enforcement and the community we serve. The unit was based on the recognition of the need for mutual understanding and cooperation to solve community and neighborhood problems. Through effective relationships, community members learn about policing while law enforcement members learn about the policing needs of the community. The Office of Community Relations was created to be a resource for citizens of Sevier County. To better understand a community’s need, we involve ourselves directly into neighborhood functions, create and promote community programs, and adopt various projects and services in order to better impact our mission. Our goal is to establish and maintain a healthy collaboration between law enforcement and the public which will foster positive support and a productive police-community relationship.
Serving in the Office of Community Relations for a busy law enforcement agency such as the Sevier County Sheriff’s Office is more of a lifestyle than a nine to five job. Much like their counterparts in the operational areas of the agency, members assigned to the office work long, often unpredictable hours and can be called out to a major incident at virtually any time of the day or night. It all boils down to the public’s right to know and providing timely and accurate information to the community.
