Patrol is the backbone of operations at the Sheriff’s Office. This division, the largest in our agency, is responsible for maintaining peace and order throughout the county 365 days a year. The main Operations building in Inverness and all Community Resource Offices are closed during weekends and observed holidays, but road patrol and law enforcement services to citizens never stop.
Although our county’s population has seen tremendous growth in the last few years, our crime rate remains extremely low. This is due to the hard work of the men and women in the Patrol Division.
The Patrol Division is currently broken down into two districts, east and west. Within each district, assigned squads of deputy sheriffs work 12-hour shifts. Within the patrol division, deputy sheriffs are part of special operational units also.
