RCSD: U.N.C.L.E. Program to hold meeting | Community Spirit
Sheriff Leon Lott constantly seeks to find innovative ways to enhance the quality of life for our citizens; but he also knows that it takes active citizens who are involved, vigilant and who develop great ideas themselves that make our communities safer. The Sheriff states that we will constantly improve our crime prevention programs for the citizens of Richland County and continue to partner with our great citizens to continue to make Richland County a great place to live work and play.
In April 2012, Sheriff Leon Lott introduced to you Mr. Bill Shuler who created a program called “United Network of Communities on Law and Enforcement or U.N.C.L.E.” Sheriff Leon Lott stated that U.N.C.L.E. was developed by Mr. Shuler (of the Bayview West community) and is a network of neighborhoods throughout Richland County focusing on keeping each other informed of criminal activity. Sheriff Lott realizes that crime isn’t limited to just one neighborhood; so U.N.C.L.E. is leading the way in keeping all neighborhoods informed on what is happening. Sheriff Lott states that U.N.C.L.E. also has a Facebook page and encourages neighborhoods to join in order to share information with each other about what is happening in their areas. U.N.C.L.E. has also been active in protesting nuisance night clubs that continually cause problems for Richland County neighborhoods.
Sheriff Leon Lott invites the media and all communities to join U.N.C.L.E at 7490 Parklane Road at the Northeast Public Library on January 15, 2013 at 6:00 PM for their quarterly meeting. The Sheriff states that the more united we are, the safer our neighborhoods will be.
The Sheriff stated that this is another example of the great citizens in Richland County developing ideas and working with the department. For more information please contact the Richland County Sheriff’s Department Community Action Team at 803-576-3191.
