Community Programs:

Neighborhood Watch Programs

Neighborhood Watch ProgramThe Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office is available to assist citizens in forming a neighborhood watch program for their area. An officer will come and speak to you and your neighbors on getting started and maintaining your program so that you will achieve the maximum benefits.

Contact: Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Department

Phone: 434-738-6171, ext. 8439

TRIAD Program

TRIAD ProgramThe local TRIAD consists of the Sheriff, police chiefs, and older or retired leaders in the community who agree to work together to reduce criminal victimization of the elderly. Important to each TRIAD is an advisory council of law enforcement leaders and older persons which serves as a sounding board, information channel, and catalyst for renewing emphasis on reducing crimes against the elderly.

The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, along with TRIAD, hosts several programs and seminars to keep people informed on the growing number of scams and fraudulent activity concerning our community. One such program is the annual Senior Citizens Police Academy, which is a three hour class held every week for six weeks. Some of the topics covered in the SCP Academy include 911 communications, substance abuse, DUI enforcement, driving safety, firearms safety, domestic violence, and magistrate duties.

For additional information on the TRIAD program, visit the TRIAD website at

File of Life

File of Life is a program that is designed to protect seniors and is an information packet for the elderly (especially those that live alone) to inform rescue personnel of emergency contacts, medical conditions, and medications if emergency services are dispatched to their residence. The packet contains an information card that is to be completed, placed back into its magnetic sleeve, and put on the refrigerator. Mecklenburg 911 is then informed that the occupant of this residence has a File of Life card available. This can save valuable minutes when rescue arrives at the resident’s home. You can obtain one of these cards by contacting the Sheriff’s Office at 434-738-6171, ext. 8439.

For information on additional Community Programs sponsored by the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, such as VINE (Victim Information & Notification Everyday), Project Lifesaver, Child Safety Seat Installation, Peep Hole Installation, and Shredder Program, visit their website at

Victim Witness Assistance Program

Victim Witness AssistanceThe Mecklenburg County Victim/Witness Assistance Program is designed to provide support, counsel and, if necessary, referral to available community services for victims of crime.

Your role as a witness is a very important one. The legal process is frequently long and complicated, but the Victim/Witness director is available to make sure your needs are addressed.

  • You have questions about your role as a witness.
  • You would like an explanation of court procedures or a tour of the courtroom before you testify.
  • You need a referral to agencies that provide emergency financial, medical or psychological assistance to crime victims.
  • You need assistance in preparing your crime victims’ compensation application.
  • You need assistance in preparing your victim impact statement.
