Letter … From Sheriff Christesen
The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office has embarked upon a NEW endeavor by launching the Volunteers In Partnership (V.I.P.) Program. This is a collective group of citizens with a true and common desire to partner with the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office by volunteering their services while learning more about the internal workings of the Sheriff’s Office.
The Volunteers in Partnership (V.I.P.) program was created in order to provide citizens with an opportunity to learn more about law enforcement by contributing their time to administrative and support tasks. This program allows volunteers to play a vital role in my vision of Community and Results Oriented Policing. Through the V.I.P. Program, the Sheriff’s Office is able to engage members of the community in an active problem-solving partnership.
We are able to provide for additional man-power without adding additional expenses to our budget. We can do this with the support of the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office Foundation. The foundation supports our volunteer functions financially.
The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office Foundation is also a NEW endeavor, it was created in 2011 and is governed by a group of community volunteers. This adds to our desire to help support our Community Policing concept and volunteer programs.
By partnering together we can help secure the future of law enforcement in San Juan County. Our foundation will provide funding in the future to ensure that critical community oriented and volunteer programs are continued even in the event budgets for the Sheriff’s Office are limited.
Thank you in advance for your support of the Sheriff’s Office, this foundation and our efforts.
Sheriff Ken Christesen
