Sheriff assess services, assigns new boundries‏
Tuesday, March 27, 2012

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC - Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott believes that the most successful law enforcement agencies stay connected with their communities and have the most active citizens. Likewise, he believes that we must stay ahead of trends and development and constantly assess the services we provide.

For those reasons, Sheriff Leon Lott encourages all communities to have an active crime watch and be our eyes and ears. Additionally, the Sheriff constantly reviews the services the Department provides to make sure that we are being efficient and effective with the resources the taxpayers provide.

In 1997 the Sheriff divided Richland County into seven patrol regions – placing deputies out into the communities we serve and allowing them to focus on community oriented policing. The placement of deputies into the patrol regions allows deputies to work in the areas where they live and allows them to get to know the citizens and criminals; and to better understand the community’s needs and potential trends.

In order to stay connected with our communities and ahead of development and trends, the Sheriff has reassigned personnel and redrawn the boundaries for three of the patrol regions. Regions 3, 6 and 7: North Columbia, Blythewood and the Northeast respectively (which have been some of the fastest developing areas in the County). With the new boundaries and reassigned personnel, the Regions will be more effective and efficient.

Below are the points of contact for the respective Regions that have changed this month:
