For the first time since Sheriff Don Brown took office in December 2018, Catawba County residents have the opportunity to meet and speak with him in an established setting on Thursday.
“It is the first of many,” Brown said.
Brown said his staff has visited areas throughout the county since he took office, including when the sheriff’s office publicly addressed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) concerns alongside Hickory Police Department in March.
But this meet and greet is specifically designed for Brown to hear the concerns from all county residents and to share what the sheriff’s office is doing to serve them.
“What I want to take away from the meet and greet is, useful information that will ultimately help the sheriff’s office provide the very best service possible,” Brown said.
“I look forward to meeting our citizens across the county to make sure that we have a continuous open line of communication. Again, so we can better serve the community.”
The sheriff’s office is welcoming residents on Thursday at 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. at their Sherrills Ford substation, which is located at 8456 Sherrills Ford Road. An RSVP is not necessary.
