National County Government Month LogoThe theme for this year’s National County Government Month (NCGM), held each April, will be “Safe and Secure Counties.”

Counties play an essential role in keeping America’s communities safe and secure by managing justice systems, bolstering economic opportunities, responding to natural disasters, facilitating emergency management response and more.

This year’s theme aligns with NACo President Sallie Clark’s 2015–2016 Presidential Initiative, which focuses on strengthening counties’ capacities in three areas:

  • protecting public safety,
  • preserving residents’ health and well-being, and
  • fostering conditions that promote economic growth.
