The Broward Sheriff’s Office is issuing a call to action to everyone in Broward County: Help us Uniting Broward!!

If you’re running a 5K for charity, doing community service, meeting someone new in your community or helping your community in some positive way, you’re Uniting Broward. Anyone can participate.

Here’s the challenge:

  1. From now until December 2, get out and participate in a positive activity that helps build your community.
  2. While performing this activity, take a picture with the Uniting Broward sign.
  3. On December 2, post your picture on social media with the #Uniting Broward.

This day-long, social media event is the next step we’re taking in Uniting Broward, by highlighting the different ways people and groups are joining together to better our communities.

At the core of Sheriff Scott Israel’s Uniting Broward initiative is the belief that a united community is a safer community.  It is designed to recapture an era when residents and business owners had strong relationships with their local law enforcement officers and each other.  This type of interaction establishes a solid foundation that will be essential when faced with a problem.

Earlier this year, BSO launched this initiative with a community conference, and later, an outdoor festival promoting safety and security. These events were opportunities for law enforcement and residents alike to listen, understand and engage.

The Uniting Broward sign is downloadable on sheriff.org/UnitingBroward or can be supplied by the Broward Sheriff’s Office upon request.

We look forward to seeing the many different ways you are Uniting Broward!
