Patrol Unit

The Patrol Unit is the largest of all divisions within the Sheriff's Office.

The most important resources within the Patrol Unit are the people. Our primary goal is to maintain a professional, highly trained and well-educated force of deputies to provide the community with the highest level of service and protection.

The Patrol Unit provides around the clock patrol and response to calls for the entire unincorporated area of Grant County, and the towns of George, Wilson Creek, Marlin and Hartline.


  • The patrol units handle the initial response to 911 calls
  • They deal with all types of calls and complete the initial report of criminal activity
  • They are the most visible police presence in the community and it is their job to provide primary law enforcement services to the public 24 hours a day, each and every day of the year
  • Patrol deputies are trained to quickly respond, assess, and manage all kinds of situations
  • Patrol deputies handle a great number of routine public assistance calls and assist other agencies in times of public emergency or other disasters
