The Bryan County Sheriff ’s Office is inviting community members to a Feb. 16 meeting in Richmond Hill to share the results of a community survey conducted with help from Georgia Southern University’s Criminal Justice and Criminology Department.

The survey took place last year during the late summer and early fall, according to BCSO Deputy Jennifer Fleming.

“We wanted to know how the community felt about our department, what areas we did well in, and what areas needed improvement,” Fleming said in an email, adding that more than 100 residents participated in the survey and their feedback was “very insightful.”

The Feb. 16 meeting will began at 6 p.m. at the Bryan County Administration Building at 66 Matthew Freeman Drive.

Sheriff Mark Crowe, Chief Deputy David Ellis and GS Criminology Department members Amanda Graham, Chad Posick, Logan Somers and Kristine Thompson – who helped develop, distribute, collect and analyze the community survey – will be on hand. “They will be able to speak to the process of the survey and what the result were,” Fleming said. “The Sheriff and Chief will be able to speak about how we are incorporating those results into the department’s operations.”

While the public is invited, the meeting will be livestreamed and members of the public with questions they’d like asked at the event can email them in advance to
