Sheriff's Patrol Officers

Sheriff's patrol officers perform general law enforcement duties such as responding to calls for service, enforce laws and ordinances, file reports of incidents, control crowds, arrest law breakers and prevent crime. Sheriff's patrol officers patrol a particular area in squad cars or on foot. Patrol officers also spend a lot of time doing paperwork.

Some of the common job titles are patrolman, police officer, patrol officer, public safety officer and law enforcement officer.

Patrol officers employed at the Independence County Sheriff's Department are assigned to either crime prevention or traffic control. A patrol officer sometimes has to testify in court or act as a witness in criminal and traffic cases.

The Patrol Officers at the Independence County Sheriff's Department are involved with community policing - a system where police officers build relationships with people living in local neighborhoods and they also ask the public to help fight crime.

Meet the members of the Patrol Division
New Website
02/16/2011

With the launch of the new Independence County Sheriffs Department website we plan to communicate with the public in a more efficient way. 

The Patrol Division is the most recognized form of law enforcement. We are the officers in uniforms driving marked cars with bright blue lights and we are the ones you have the most contact with. All things considered, we hope to maintain a dialogue with you about traffic safety and and some of the specific concerns we have in our community. 

In the future, we will be posting information about traffic safety zones, sobriety checkpoints, and areas where we may be monitoring speed.
