The primary role of the Uniform Division is one of pro-active patrol for crime prevention. Uniform deputies are first responders to all reported criminal activities, ranging from calls that may be as simple as theft and trespassing runs to major events such as murder, suicide, rape and child molestation.

A two man “Accident Reconstruction Team” from the Division is called on to investigate all fatality crashes.

Another specialized unit within the Division is K-9. Four deputies are trained in handling the Department’s four dogs. These animals are trained in search, apprehension, and drug recognition methods. They are often called upon to search for suspects who have fled on foot from crime scenes as well as to perform searches of vehicles and homes where suspected controlled substances may be hidden. They are also utilized to locate small children or the impaired elderly who have wandered away from their residences.

The Emergency Response Team (ERT) consists of the Team Commander, Entry Team Leader & Team members, Medic, Sniper, and Negotiators. This unit is called upon to perform high risk warrant service, barricaded suspect situations and hostage taking scenarios. The goal of this unit is always the peaceful resolution to the situation.
