The Lincoln County Sheriff's Dept. is involved with the Enhanced Neighborhood Policing Program. At this time, three towns, Bremen, Bristol and Newcastle have organized advisory boards.

Newcastle's group called NewCOPS is working on street safety and a drug awareness program that will be presented to parents in February 99. They are also putting together a telephone card with many of the numbers that are hard to find in stressful situations. Their coordinator is Fire Chief Clayton Huntley Jr.

BENPAC is the name chosen by the advisory board from the town of Bristol. They have outdone themselves with various community based projects, including two bike safety programs, a telephone emergency card for all Bristol residents and a drug informational series for parents. David DeLong of Hanna's Store is the coordinator and the person to contact if you are interested in joining.

Bremen's advisory group is working toward making residents feel safer in this community. They have devised various ways to contact folks and along with the advent of new technology in the Sheriff's Dept. are hopeful that they will and can make a difference. For more information call Susan Davis.

Deputies are part of these organizations but do not take leading roles. ENP is a structured approach that creates a sustainable community organization that will eventually achieve measurable reductions in crime, substance abuse, delinquency and family violence. And in the process of reaching these goals, the community can become a safer and more enjoyable community in which to live.
