The men and women assigned to the Sheriff's Patrol serve as the first responders to calls for service throughout Teller County.
In answering calls for service, the Patrol Deputy’s primary duty is to conduct preliminary investigations, maintain order within the community through the enforcement of state and local laws and to conduct preventive patrols while developing positive community relations.
In addition to their regular duties several of the Patrol Section Deputies are also members of other specialized units within the Teller County Sheriff’s Office. The additional training requirements necessary to be a member of these specialized units requires a tremendous amount of dedication to both the Sheriff’s Office and the Community.
