Community Outreach:

Community Outreach is a vital component of the Fulton County Sheriff's Office. This section promotes safety to Fulton County citizens of all ages and coordinates events to educate members of the community which is one of the Constitutional mandates of the Office. Special events include the Fall Festival for children and their families, participation in the Senior And Law Enforcement Together (SALT) Annual Senior Conference, the distribution of obsolete uniform coats to needy families, Easter Egg Hunt for children, and several other activities throughout the year.
