The Patrol Division is an essential component to the Dallas County Sheriff's Office. Patrol Deputies respond to citizen concerns/complaints, emergencies and any report of criminal activity. It is the responsibility of the Patrol Division to respond to every type of call from a barking dog to a fatal incident. Patrol Deputies respond to and assist the public in all types of situations.
The Dallas County Sheriff's Office provides law enforcement services to all unincorporated areas of Dallas County as well as Communities that do not host their own police department. We currently contract with Dexter, Redfield and Dallas Center to provide patrol. The Sheriff's Office acts as a backup force to all law enforcement that serves in Dallas County.
