On Tuesday March 15th, the Office of the Fayette County Sheriff launched a new Community Outreach Program called Dine With a Deputy. In this program, Office of the Fayette County Deputy Sheriffs visit with the residents of local assisted living and nursing homes and share a meal together while building lasting relationships. This program was created as a means for the Office of the Fayette County Sheriff to give back to the senior citizens in our community by reaching out to them and letting them know that they are truly appreciated and deeply cared for by the Office of the Fayette County Sheriff.

The first event of this new program was held at Northpoint Healthcare Center here in Lexington. Sheriff Witt, Chief Deputy Jay Pittman, Sergeant Antoine Palmer, as well as two members of our Public Affairs staff were able to begin building personal relationships with some of the residents of Northpoint and listened as many of the residents shared the incredible stories of their lives.

The Office of the Fayette County Sheriff wants to remind seniors in our community that we are thankful for all of their hard work and dedication that has created such an amazing community here in Lexington. The main goal of this new initiative is to give back to the citizens who have worked so hard for what they have built for future generations to enjoy. The Office of the Fayette County Sheriff respects and honor the senior citizens in our community, as they have worked so hard throughout their lives to create such an incredible community for us to call home.

If your organization is interested in participating in our Dine With a Deputy Program, please call the Office of the Fayette County Sheriff at (859) 252-1771.
