Sheriff Carolyn "Bunny" Welsh has headed the Chester County office since 2001.

Chester County Sheriff Carolyn "Bunny" Welsh is being recognized for her crime-fighting initiatives -- again. Tonight, at the 89th Annual Pennsylvania Sheriffs' Association Convention in Gettysburg, she will receive the Crime Prevention Office of the Sheriff Award.

A joint endeavor of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency and the Pennsylvania Sheriffs' Association, the award is given annually to a county sheriff who has demonstrated a strong commitment to crime prevention and reduction efforts. Welsh was a previous recipient in 2008.

The organizers cited a number of Welsh's programs, such as "Think Safe," which provides young children with an action plan for emergencies; "Triad," which offers crime-prevention tips to older adults; and "Bullying Hurts," an initiative designed to educate children about the dangers of bullying.

The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency is the state's lead agency for criminal justice policy issues and is committed to providing support to law enforcement agencies. For more information, call 717-705-0888 or visit www.pccd.state.pa.us .
