The Nantucket County Sheriff Department understands that our public safety mission extends beyonds the walls of the Department. Many Islanders host events throughout the years to get community members involved with important topics that go on on Island. Some of these events are geared towards making our youth better, our senior citizens recognized, or to shine a light on topics that are overlooked on island.

Below are some of the events the Nantucket County Sheriff Department is involved in. If you'd like to know more information on each event, continue to their website, or contact us and we can let you know more about how we are involved.
