What We Do

Patrol covers all of Cleveland County, which is a geographical area of approximately 558 square miles. Patrol Districts or Beats are divided into 5 areas. Patrol’s primary responsibility is responding to calls for service, taking reports, resolving disputes, ensuring traffic safety, conducting traffic enforcement, the taking of lost or abandoned large domestic animals or livestock, crime prevention, assisting other law enforcement agencies when requested, and making arrests. The men and women of Patrol are committed to providing the best law enforcement services possible

Patrol Deputies are often the first police official to arrive on the scene. They conduct preliminary investigations and complete any required police reports. The reports are then forwarded to the Criminal Investigation Detachment (CID) for assessment for investigative assignment.
