Fairfield County Sheriff Encourages Citizens to Join Fight Against Crime


In response to a growing desire among residents to assist law enforcement and strengthen community partnerships in combating crime, Sheriff Alex Lape of Fairfield County has announced an initiative inviting citizens to become associate members of the Buckeye State Sheriff’s Association.

Membership appeals will be sent out via mail shortly, offering individuals the opportunity to join the voluntary program with a contribution starting at just $25. The funds collected will play a crucial role in providing technical resources, training, and legislative support on key criminal justice issues.

Sheriff Lape emphasized the significance of this initiative, particularly in light of the challenges in securing government funding. “The membership drive has taken on greater importance than ever before,” stated Sheriff Lape. “The funding is vital to helping us carry out our mission of making communities safer places to live, work, and play.”

Residents who do not receive a membership appeal but are interested in more information can contact the Buckeye State Sheriff’s Association directly at 1103 Schrock Rd., Suite 401, Columbus, Ohio 43229, or by phone at 614-431-5500. Additionally, individuals can reach out to the Sheriff’s Office to become members of the program.

The membership program aims to provide citizens with the opportunity to support more effective law enforcement and assist local officers in safeguarding lives and property within the community.

“As the need for stronger public-private law enforcement partnerships continues to escalate, programs like this will grow in importance,” noted Sheriff Lape. “I encourage everyone receiving a membership appeal to consider joining forces with us by becoming an associate member. It is a valuable investment in the future.”
