NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Adams County Sheriff-elect Travis Patten wants the county to be the kind of place criminals out-and-out avoid.

To do that, The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1NatMfp) the sheriff’s office is going to need the help of the entire community.

Patten said he’s looking to form an advisory board of eight to 10 residents outside the sheriff’s office to bring community concerns to him and add an “attention to detail we need.”

Patten also said he’s been meeting with faith leaders in the community in an effort to form partnerships to mentor young men in how to apply and interview for jobs and how to behave once they have one.

Patten says he has selected a team that is working on a plan to revamp the Natchez-Adams County Metro Narcotics Division.
