Uniform Patrol Division

The Uniform Patrol Division, also known as the Road Division, is the most visible component of the Sheriff's Office. Deputies assigned to the Road Division are all certified Peace Officers, having completed the training requirements of the State of Georgia. All deputies in the Uniform Patrol must maintain their certification by attending and completing a minimum of twenty hours of additional training each year.

The training requirements are mandated by the Peace Officer Standards and Training council (P.O.S.T.) and all classes must be P.O.S.T. approved. Deputies with the Road Division assume a wide range of duties, including answering emergency calls from 911, directing traffic, taking incident and accident reports, and apprehending and arresting criminal offenders. In addition, they also testify in court proceedings, serve civil papers and warrants, and conduct preliminary investigations into criminal activities.

If you require a copy of an incident or accident report, drop by the Sheriff's Office at any time, day or night. The on-duty Jail Officer will locate a copy for you free of charge.
