Community Outreach

 Unity through Trust…Trust through Connection

Outreach Events

operation_free_bird.pngOperation Free Bird is an event sponsored by the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, the Adams County Sheriff’s Foundation and 200+ community partners that give back to those less fortunate in the areas we serve. Each family that attends the event receives everything needed for a holiday meal. During the event, the participants are afforded the opportunity to visit with a number of resources to include medical, dental, grooming, job services and public assistance information.

Once a month Sheriff Michael McIntosh will be live on location at a business within Adams County. During the Facebook Live he will have a conversation with that business owner and discuss public safety topics.

Moving Forward in 2018

As we look ahead into the future, the Adams County Sheriff’s Office is making it a priority to establish positive relationships with our diverse population.

We plan to continue our current outreach events and we are in the process of developing new tools to reach more of our community. Stay tuned and check out our events calendar for more information.
