Sheriff's Citizens Patrol
"Making a Difference Through Volunteering"
The Forsyth County Sheriff's Citizens Patrol, started in January 2005, is a team
of highly trained volunteers who enhance vital crime prevention services and community
awareness through proactive law enforcement principles. They perform a wide range
of functions such as traffic control, assisting with duties at the courthouse, fingerprinting,
serving subpoenas and many other special assignments. Volunteers serve a minimum
of 8 hours per month.
If you are 21 years of age or older, a U.S. citizen, live in Forsyth County, have
access to a computer and feel you might have an interest in becoming a volunteer
in this program, please contact Sergeant Charles Sayers at 917-7001. Learn

"Whether you are a sworn law enforcement officer or a civilian, being involved in
public safety is everyone's responsibility. Volunteering your time and energy is
an excellent way to be involved in your community and help your neighbors. Volunteers
in the Sheriff's Citizens Patrol provide a value-added component to the Forsyth
County Sheriff's Office and a level of support in public safety that is recognizable,
cost effective and productive."
