(Walhalla, SC)————————————–The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting its annual “Boo with the Blue” event next Tuesday, October 31st, from 6:00pm until 8:00pm. The Community Outreach event will take place in the main parking lot at the Law Enforcement Center in Walhalla, which is located at 300 S. Church Street.
During “Boo with the Blue,” deputies and employees of the Sheriff’s Office will be handing out candy for trick-or-treaters in vehicles that drive thru. Also, the Sheriff’s Office parking lot will be decorated with blue lights from the Sheriff’s Office vehicles that will also be parked in the parking lot.
“The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office hosted the first “Boo with the Blue” event in 2018,” says Oconee County Sheriff Mike Crenshaw. ““Boo with a Blue” was created not only as a community outreach event but also to continue to build relationships with children so they will not be afraid should they see blue lights or law enforcement officers. We want children and young people to know that law enforcement is there to help them should they ever need us. We are looking forward to seeing everyone next Tuesday night.”
