of providing a worthwhile community service.
Special Deputy Division is comprised of men and women who work in

In their off-hours, they put on the Sheriff's Office uniform, patrol
streets and perform other public safety duties for the community.
Their dedication to the Sheriff's Office and community is often unmatched.
Deputies work in a variety of assignments to include Patrol/Investigations,
Corrections/Inmate Transports, and Courthouse Security. They support
the day to day operations of the Sheriff's Office on a weekly basis.

the same intensive training as full-time deputies. They are governed
