The Mille Las County Patrol Division consists of 13 deputies who provide patrol and law enforcement services to residents and visitors of the county. These essential members of the Sheriff's Office are most commonly the first point of contact for the public.
The Sheriff's K-9 Unit is also an integral part of the Patrol Division, and provides drug detection services, as well as tracking and apprehension of suspects.
Training & Certification
The K-9 deputy and his dog attend extensive and rigorous training to become certified by the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA). The K-9 Unit is on-call and available 24/7; they also provide assistance to other agencies, as requested. Additionally, their services are utilized in keeping our children safer by conducting locker searches in local schools, and by helping to search for lost children.
