RCSD outreach and partnerships with all citizens‏
Thursday, November 15, 2012

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC - Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott is proud of the work that the personnel of the Sheriff’s Department are doing with all of our communities – Richland County is a very diverse community and the Sheriff has a passion and vision for the Department to work closely with each and every culture, religion and community group. For this reason he hires and assigns personnel to work closely with the diverse groups in the Midlands. The Sheriff knows that in order to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods and business communities, deputies must understand everyone’s beliefs, desires and needs.

Sheriff Leon Lott added that one example of this outreach and partnership is with the Islamic Community and the US Attorney’s Office in South Carolina. Deputies from the Sheriff’s Department joined US Attorney William Nettles at Seven Oaks Park on November 10, 2012. The community event was part of the regular monthly gatherings, by the Muslim community in Columbia, where close to fifty (50) Muslim families attend to build unity. The gatherings include dinner, fun games for the youth and religious discussions. During the November meeting The US Attorney for South Carolina, Mr. William Nettles, attended and talked about civil rights and freedom of worship. He also answered some questions about the problems that face the Muslim community and planning future meetings with the Muslim Community and the Sheriff’s Department and US Attorney’s Office.
