In addition to normal law enforcement and corrections activities, LCSO participates in several programs aimed at bettering our community and helping those in need, as well introducing our community to what we do.
Project Lifesaver is the premier search and rescue program operated internationally by public safety agencies.
Toys for Tots
The basic mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Program is to collect new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas.
The purpose of the Academy is to provide citizens with a basic understanding of the training and requirements for their local law enforcement officers.
National Drug Takeback
The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
Department of Defense Excess Property Program
The National Defense Authorization Act authorizes the Secretary of Defense to transfer excess Department of Defense (DoD) personal property to local law enforcement agencies with special emphasis given to counter-drug and counterterrorism. The 1033 program (formerly the 1208 program) allows law enforcement agencies to receive DOD excess property. Vehicle and Asset Management, through an agreement between the Defense Logistics Agency and the State of Tennessee, has been charged with administration of the program.
