Volunteer and Jail Programs
We are more than just a law enforcement agency. Last year, our dedicated volunteers donated more than 105,000 hours of their time to the community that we all love. Their incredible sacrifice saved taxpayers millions of dollars. You may have noticed them at signature events, such as Memphis in May, St. Jude Marathon, Race for a Cure, and the FedEx St. Jude World Golf Championship. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
SCSO has 41 programs to help equip our returning citizens with tools to be successful in the community. We congratulate the 286 detainees baptized and the 33 scholars who earned their GED in 2019. We would be remiss if we did not pause to thank our staff and volunteers for their unwavering commitment to rehabilitating our detainees.
