Community Advisors Sought To Work With Sheriff in Santa Cruz County

The Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office is searching for community members for the Sheriff's Advisory Team, a representative group of local volunteer members who will meet monthly with Sheriff-elect Jim Hart to discuss law enforcement issues impacting neighborhoods and rural areas.

Sheriff's officials said in a statement that they are looking for community members from "all walks of life including residents from all five Board of Supervisor districts, residents in each of the four cities, and people working in the health, treatment, faith, education and business professions."

The goal of the team is to stay in open communication with the community. The team will be selected by Aug. 1 and the group will meet on the first Wednesday of each month from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the sheriff's office headquarters at 5200 Soquel Ave. in Santa Cruz.

Anyone interested in joining the team is asked to go to www.scsheriff.com and click on the link to complete the application.

This is a really important activity. Communication with the neighborhoods and county groups could really improve situations of vandalism, violence, neglect and other crimes.

There are positive things that could come from this group. If people find out what the needs in the community are, the county might be able to prevent youth boredom, senior poor health, burglaries or drug sales.
