  Sheriff Brown photoSheriff Ezell Brown Speaks at National Night Out

Newton County Sheriff’s Office celebrated National Night Out on August 5, 2014. National Night Out is an annual community event designed to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. The National Night Out is the climax of the Neighborhood Watch Program efforts.

While the one night is certainly not an answer to crime, drugs and violence, National Night Out represents the kind of spirit, energy and determination to help make neighborhoods a safer place year round. The night celebrates safety and crime prevention successes and works to expand and strengthen programs for the next 364 days.

Newton County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Brown believe Neighborhood Watch Programs are intended to help reduce crime by utilizing the eyes and ears of the community. The programs strengthen the community and are the bedrock of the community. The members of the programs are the intelligence base and most often assist the sheriff’s office with solving crimes. The information from the community is passed on the Crime Analysis Unit where the deputy study the information systematically to assist in criminal apprehension, crime and disorder reduction, crime prevention, and evaluation. The programs are a direct flow of communication to the Sheriff’s Office, and from the Sheriff’s Office to the citizens.

NCSO have over 120 established Neighborhood Watch Programs. The NCSO Community Outreach Unit assist the neighborhoods in establishing their unit and once established, the sheriff’s office step back and allow them to manage their program. They are educated on how to keep an eye on their neighborhood and how to report any activity. They are made aware of literature and materials they can use to keep their community informed. They are also given complimentary neighborhood watch signs. The sheriff’s office is available to attend meetings and events. They also have cookouts and fellowship events. Sheriff Brown is usually in attendance.  He attempts to make his name as well as the NCSO a household name.
