The responsibility of this unit is to maintain a safe and orderly environment for citizens and visitors in all areas of Clay County.
Few would dispute the fact that deputies assigned to the Patrol Division are the backbone of the Sheriff's Office. These are the men who are the first to respond to your call for help. They are almost always the first to arrive on a scene and give aid and comfort to the injured. They often put themselves in harm's way every day they are on the job to stabilize a violent domestic call or when they search a dark building for a dangerous suspect. They pull victims out of burning buildings or give the first life-saving breaths of CPR to the child they have just pulled out of a backyard swimming pool. They serve and protect the citizens of Clay County and they do it with little recognition or fanfare. They take it all in and see what they do as simply part of their jobs.
The Patrol Division is responsible for responding to all types of emergency and non-emergency calls for service. The Patrol Division advocates preventative patrol and strives to maintain high visibility as a way to deter crime.
Clay County Sheriff’s Department is devoted to the well-being of all the citizens and visitors of Clay County. Providing elite and prompt service to those in crisis.
We are proud to serve you Clay County!
