Background Discussion
Manatee County is highlighting one month’s worth of public safety and wellness tips throughout April, Smart Justice Month, as part of the National Association of Counties’ annual County Government Month.

Manatee’s myriad public safety-related and wellness programs are highlighted on the county’s website throughout this month. The County will also host an April 24 Smart Justice showcase on the front lawn of Manatee County Historic Courthouse. From noon until 4 p.m., Manatee County Government departments, the Clerk of the Circuit Courts Office and Manatee County Health Department will set up displays highlighting their contributions to a safer community.

For the past two years, the National Association of Counties has recognized Manatee County's efforts with first place finishes for our efforts in NACO's annual County Government Month festivities.
