The Sheriff’s Law Enforcement Foundation is a 501c(3) organization initially formed by Sheriff Jim Hammond and numerous private individuals in 2010. It's purpose is threefold:
Command Leadership Training
The men and women of law enforcement tirelessly perform their duties, contributing to the safety and security that all of our citizens enjoy. They keep us safe from violent criminals and repeat offenders, by maintaining a secure jail, as well as keep the wheels of justice running smoothly by protecting the lives of the citizens and lawmakers who do business in our courts.
Hamilton County’s population and potential for growth is expected to increase dramatically over the coming years. New economic forces will bring an increased demand for the need of professional and timely law enforcement services in our region.
Economic realities of our day have made a noticeable impact on the field of law enforcement. Now, more than ever, we are challenged to do more with less. And yet, the criminal-element in our society possess an ever-expanding pool of resources to challenge the order and prosperity that our citizens enjoy.
In order to meet these new realities, we need the direction and the vision that comes from the participation of private individuals, the members of the business community who can make a true difference in helping chart a course for the future of law enforcement.
