The Cumberland County Sheriff 's Office Support Services Division has many functions. Through a community relations mindset, the Sheriff 's Office supports many non-profit organizations that directly benefit the citizens of Cumberland County. These include the Volunteers In Police Services (VIPS) and Explorer Post #3, a partnership with TRIAD, the SNAP program, and many youth programs aimed at ensuring the success of youth in the Cumberland County communities.
The Support Services Division indirectly benefits the community by providing continuous employee training, and grant writing in order to offset the cost of doing business. Recently, the Cumberland County Sheriff 's Office signed a contract with the Commission for Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA). CALEA provides guidance, and interaction with law enforcement agencies throughout the United States, and is a sort of complete agency training and evaluation tool to ensure best-practices in law enforcement.
