The Sheriff's Office has many Community Education Programs for citizens of Mercer County to keep them informed on crime prevention methods and personal safety. Throughout the year, Sheriff's personnel visit all areas of Mercer County providing discussion, instruction and demonstration for adults and children to help make their lives safer. Some of our highly effective work is geared towards seniors, some toward students and some towards the public at large. Whether aimed at those at home, at work or in school, these programs have made local residents better educated about crime awareness and prevention.

Our programs are designed for individuals, families, social and religious organizations and teachers. Please contact the Sheriff's Office if you are interested in scheduling a program or have any questions please call (609) 278-7159.
