As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Sheriff’s Office is actively working on plans to limit exposure of our deputies and the general public.
Effective immediately, we are going to begin handling some calls via telephone. When dispatch receives a call, they will continue to deal with the call following their normal protocols. They will CAD (notate) and dispatch the call to the appropriate unit as usual. It will be the responsibility of the deputy and the on-duty supervisor to evaluate which calls can be handled via telephone. Once a determination is made that it is a “telephone” response, the deputy will make contact with the complainant via phone and provide the appropriate information and complete the proper paperwork.
As a reminder, this is a fluid situation that will be changing daily. We will continue to re-evaluate the situation and make adjustments as needed.
Your Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is dedicated to our most precious and valuable citizens, your children. Sheriff Cunningham has assigned Deputy Sheriff’s as School Resource Officers in our schools to help keep everyone safe while at our schools but also to help bridge the gap between the community we serve and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. Our SRO’s are dedicated to working closely with school administrators and staff in order to help prevent crime, protect lives, and educate or mentor children. If you are at one of our schools and have a question for one of our SRO’s, please feel free to stop and speak with one of them. If we are able, we will assist you.
