Forsyth County, NC-- It's said that your strength is in numbers. And a Triad Sheriff's Office want you and your neighbors to team up against the bad guys.
Monday, the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office offered one way you and your neighbors can become a strong crime fighting force while also supporting your local deputies.
Sheriff William T. Schatzman invites all Forsyth County citizens to become Honorary Members of the North Carolina Sheriffs' Association.
The North Carolina Sheriffs' Association, which was founded in 1922, is a not-for-profit professional and educational organization dedicated to the preservation of peace and the protection of the lives and property of the citizens of North Carolina.
With government funding becoming increasingly difficult to secure, the North Carolina Sheriffs' Association's Honorary Membership Program has taken on greater importance than ever before. The funding is vital in helping to carry out the mission of making our county a safer place to live, work and play.
Contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by Section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
Individuals choosing to join the voluntary program can do so for $25, while businesses can show their support with a $50 contribution. The funding provides critically important technical resources, legislative support on key criminal justice issues, and support for the NCSA Undergraduate Criminal Justice Scholarship Program at state universities.
Additional training for Sheriffs and their deputies are also funded through memberships. Membership applications will be delivered in the mail this month.
Individuals not receiving a membership application or desiring more information may contact the association at the information listed below.
