The Lewis County Sheriff's Office Support Volunteers started after a Citizen's Academy in 2002. The group has grown in membership and has assisted the Sheriff;s Office with crime prevention activities such as: Neighborhood Watch, Crime Free Rental Housing, Child ID, Fraud Fighters, CPTED, Boating safety, Methamphetamine Watch, Drug Education for children, Safety City for children, and Speed Emphasis Unit.
The Support Volunteers also have assisted with the 2006 and 2007 flooding by doing patrols in the flooded areas, food delivery and working in the EOC and recovery furniture bank.
Since the flooding in 2007 the LCSOSV have taken an active roll in patrols of areas during day time hours for suspicious activity. The LCSOSV have taken the Neighborhood Watch program over and conduct meeting and trainings for our citizens on home protection and preparedness.
