Often times, deputies are involved in traffic enforcement activities, which allows commuters to safely travel through these jurisdcations. They also protect Florida's east and west coast travelers. Uniform Patrol deputies initiate enforcement strategies and assist detectives in investigating serious crimes.

Captain Atlas plans, directs and supervises all patrol shifts, while shift sergeants supervise the patrol deputies.
The Sheriff's Office Agricultural Crimes Unit, Environmental Crimes Unit and the Sheriff's Posse is also part of our West County Operations Division.
