Patrol Division

Polk County Sheriff's Office patch

The Polk County Patrol Division is under the command of Lieutenant Jeff Isham.  At this time we only have one shift per day, generally consisting of a supervisor and regular patrol deputies. Patrol is responsible for initial handling of calls for service. Personnel assigned to this division are uniformed and perform most initial investigations, including follow-up, enforce traffic laws, service of civil papers and provide citizens assistance activities.

The Detective Division consists of two detectives who are responsible for the follow-up of felony crimes and major investigations including, but not limited to, sex crimes, burglaries, and special investigations. Members of the Detectives and Patrol Divisions are also assigned to a County-wide Major Crimes Team.
