Crime Prevention

The Walton County Sheriff's Office strives to develop partnerships between the deputies and the community in efforts to keep Walton County a safe county with a strong local economy and livable neighborhoods. How this is carried out varies greatly from area to area based on the circumstances and needs of each neighborhood. Each deputy assigned to patrol a particular area is tasked with familiarizing themselves with their area and the issues that are important to the residents and visitors of the area. Additionally, the deputies are tasked with developing solutions for the various problems they may identify. In turn, it is necessary for each citizen to be active in their neighborhood by participating in Neighborhood Watch programs, neighborhood associations, and just being good neighbors. In addition to the deputy assigned to your neighborhood and community, the Walton County Sheriff's Office has a Crime Prevention Specialist who can assist your neighborhood, civic organization or school with your Crime Prevention needs. For more information on how you can participate in Crime Prevention call 892-8186.
