Community Engagement

As the next Sheriff of DeKalb County, I will engage with the community through

social media. A sheriff's department Facebook page is a great example!


Social media is an invaluable tool to law enforcement agencies in the 21st

Century. It can be used to:

  • Increase the department's transparency

  • Assist with staff recruiting

  • Educate the public on law enforcement related issues

  • Alert the public of emergencies/road hazards, and

  • Identify suspects in crimes

Most importantly, a sheriff's department's Facebook page comes at no expense

to the taxpayers. The surrounding county sheriff's department's also utilize Facebook... Check

them out below!
