The Criminal Patrol Division of the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office operates 24/7 with the mission of protecting and serving the citizens of Montgomery County.  The division is comprised of 63 sworn deputies who serve in various assignments with the common goal of enforcing laws.  The Patrol Division is comprised of three regular patrol shifts, one rotating (swing) patrol shift, a traffic enforcement unit, and a K-9 Unit.

 

1st, 2nd, 3rd Shift Patrol

The Deputies assigned to the three patrol shifts are primarily responsible for patrolling outside of the city limits and providing law enforcement services to the citizens of Montgomery County.  They are responsible for responding to calls for service as well as vacation home and business checks.  Additionally the patrol deputies work traffic enforcement on the roadways of Montgomery County.

Swing Shift Patrol

The Deputies assigned to the swing shift are primarily responsible for patrolling areas based on crime trend spikes.  The supervisor of this unit works closely with our Investigative Division following statistics and determining the locations, days, times when crimes are more likely to occur.  When a crime trend is identified the members of this shift are assigned to concentrate their efforts in those areas with the mission of preventing further crimes and arresting those responsible for crimes.

Traffic Enforcement

The Deputies assigned to the traffic enforcement unit are specially equipped with motorcycles and speed detection devices.  You will see them in the mornings and afternoons in our school zones helping keep the students of the Montgomery County Schools safe.  In between their efforts in the school zones the traffic units enforce traffic laws on the roadways of Montgomery County.

K-9 Unit

The Deputies assigned to the K-9 unit are all specially trained to work with a K-9 partner.  The unit is comprised of six K-9 teams, five of the dogs are trained in apprehension work and narcotics detection, one of the dogs is trained in apprehension work and explosives detection.  The K-9 teams assist the patrol and swing shift deputies by responding to calls for service which may require the special skills of the trained K-9.  The K-9 unit also assists outside agencies and organizations with narcotics sweeps and bomb sweeps.
