New Sheriff’s vision and mission statement

Oconee’s new Sheriff, Mike Crenshaw, is out with a new vision and mission statement which he’s requiring all of his employees to follow. The mission statement reads: “The men and women of the Sheriff’s Office are committed to making Oconee County a safer place to live, work, and play. All members of our agency will employ effective Community Policing Strategies, with a focus on solving problems that lead to crimes in our neighborhoods, schools, and workplaces. We will strive to improve the quality of life for all of our citizens. This mission will be accomplished by building a partnership with the community we serve, maintaining high standards of accountability, and proactively but fairly enforcing our laws. We are dedicated to building a strong Oconee by being united with our community. Crenshaw has asked his employees to “keep this in your work ethic and apply it to everything we do.”
