Early in his tenure as Orange County's chief law enforcement officer Sheriff Demings established 10 basic goals for the Sheriff's Office, one of which is to "work cooperatively with community and government partners." Sheriff Demings understands that, no matter how good an agency is, it can not effectively serve and protect a community without the complete support and backing from that community. Establishing and maintaining an open line of communication between the agency and the citizens it serves is one way to help build that support. To help achieve that goal Sheriff Demings has hosted two Crime Summits.
The idea of community crime summit meetings was actually proposed by Sheriff Demings' Transition Team. The summits were proposed to bring government leaders, area business men and women, representatives from the county school system, local clergy, and members of the community together to identify and discuss the crime issues they believe to be the most crucial to the safety and security of Orange County.
