Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office Celebrates Safe Communities

 Kaufman Texas, - Saturday June 4, 2011 Sheriff David A. Byrnes sponsored a fish fry to honor all the Crime Watch and Citizens on Patrol groups of Kaufman County.

The purpose of the event was to thank each member of the groups for all the hard work, in helping to deter crime in their neighborhoods. Sheriff Byrnes stated, “We cannot be everywhere, and you are our eyes and ears and are a tremendous help to us.”

Several cases this year were cleared by vigilant neighbors, alerting us to neighborhood burglaries. We believe when we get to know and trust one another we can truly create safe communities.

Sheriff Byrnes also stated that “A safe home begins with a safe neighbor. Neighbors are the first line of defense.” “Besides taking a bite out of crime, watch groups can put “neighbor” back in neighborhoods.”
