The following information is provided from data collected during fiscal year beginning October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017.

Our Uniformed Patrol Division is our most visible unit in the organization. They provide services around the clock each day of the week. The uniformed deputy is first to respond to calls from citizens in need. Their responses range from animal complaints to more serious crimes such as financial frauds, child related offenses, rape, robbery, assaults and murder. Deputies also respond to property related crimes such as home break-ins, property damage, and thefts. Deputies are tasked with serving court related summons, civil process, criminal arrest warrants, traffic enforcement, residential and commercial security checks, crime scene preservation, transport of inmates, courthouse and courtroom security, courtroom testimony, patrolling rural neighborhoods and roadways. These numbers are generated from our patrol, criminal investigative, narcotic, court and jail division’s monthly activity reports.
