The patrol division
is the largest part of the office and the first line of defense to the
community. Our goal is to provide 24 hour service to the communities
within La Paz County. To effectively reach this goal the patrol
division is divided into three districts to cover the nearly 4500
square miles of the county. To date, there are four substations located
throughout La Paz County. Each district has one deputy assigned per
shift and one sergeant, working twelve hour shifts.
The patrol division
is commanded by the Patrol Lieutenant and is comprised of four
sergeants and fifteen deputies. Additional assignments in the patrol
division include K-9, School Resource, Arson Investigation, Search and
Rescue Coordinator, Critical Collision Investigation, Field Training

training in collision investigation and reconstruction. The team is
supervised by a field sergeant and overseen by the patrol commander. The critical
collision team utilizes Total Station computer diagramming equipment
for major collision scenes and assists most of the agencies in the
county with investigations and reconstruction of serious injury and
