About the Uniformed Patrol Division
When you think about law enforcement, the uniformed police officer assigned to the Patrol Division is what usually comes to mind first. The Patrol Division is the backbone of any law enforcement agency. Patrol officers at the Floyd County Sheriff’s Department are courteous, educated and highly trained. These dedicated officers spend nights, weekends and holidays away from their families protecting the citizens of Floyd County with professionalism and expertise at an unparalleled standard. They are involved in every aspect of the department. A patrol officer’s function provides perhaps the most challenging yet rewarding day-to-day activity at any law enforcement agency. The Sheriff’s Department Patrol Division is primarily responsible for patrolling the unincorporated areas of Floyd County, 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, as well as small towns without 24-hour police services such as Georgetown and Greenville.
Police Officers in the Patrol Division perform duties including county-wide patrol, traffic enforcement, criminal investigation, crash investigation, crimes-in-progress, domestic disturbances and more. Within the Patrol Division are school resource officers, a team of crash reconstruction officers, civil process officers and sex offender compliance officers.
The Sheriff and the Patrol Division are dedicated to protecting all citizens of Floyd County by working with all local police, fire, EMS, or other agencies in any way that our agency is able to provide support.
