Sheriff to speak at community meeting

Sheriff Richard Roundtree will speak at a District 4 community meeting Wednesday called by District 4 Augusta Commissioner and 2014 mayoral hopeful Alvin Mason.

From 6- 8 p.m. at Diamond Lakes Regional Park Gymnasium, the briefing will cover crime, awareness, prevention and ways citizens can assist the sheriff’s department with fighting crime, according to a news release from the clerk of commission.

“We can no longer sit down and watch Augusta shut down; we have to stand up so that Augusta can stand out,” the release said.
