Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division:
The Sheriff’s patrol division is one of the most complex, burdensome, and dangerous aspects of our service performed by uniformed deputies. This work must be carried out in an atmosphere mostly charged with emotion, hostility, and distrust. In the majority of cases, patrol deputies must intervene in situations that require them to act as clergy, psychologists, and therapists, as they deal with human problems. The patrol has been described as the “backbone” of the Sheriff’s Office.
The Sheriff’s Patrol is staffed by four Sergeants, and ten Deputies. It has the responsibility of patrolling the 600 plus square miles of our county. Currently these fourteen Officers handle over 1,500 reported incidents and patrol approximately 30,000 to 40,000 miles a month, along with other assigned duties, twenty four hours a day.
