SCSO is committed to not just being a law enforcement agency, but a resource for the community. We currently provide 34 school resource officers, often viewed as campus mentors, for 26 schools throughout Memphis and Shelby County. We are committed to the SHAPE program, which is designed to help divert youth offenders from interacting with Juvenile Court.
SCSO also offers 30 programs designed to support neighborhood crime prevention efforts. Last year, nearly 100,000 people attended the 591 events conducted by the Sheriff’s Office throughout Memphis and Shelby County
