The Polk County Patrol Division is under the command of Lieutenant Jeff Isham. At this time we have two shifts 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 currently consists of one detective, who is 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.
