ii. BACKGROUND: As part of our on-going efforts, Compton Station has implemented the “Town Sheriff Program.” The Town Sheriff Program consists of having a lead deputy (Town Sheriff) assigned to each of our four council districts, along with a special assignment deputy. The idea of having a Town Sheriff is to have an officer who would become more familiar and recognizable in the community, thus building a stronger relationship with residents. The Town Sheriff will liaison with the assigned district councilmember and attend the councilmember’s monthly district meeting. The Town Sheriff and the special assignment deputy will be immediately available to address the majority of the quality of life issues that affect each district. The Town Sheriff and the special assignment deputy will be able to provide feedback and better communication with the councilmember and stakeholders.
