Uniform Patrol

The Uniform Patrol Bureau of the Leon County Sheriff's Office consists of 82 Deputy Sheriffs and Supervisors who provide law enforcement services to a 702 square mile area. The Deputies are deployed to one of two fixed shifts and assigned to one of eight (8) fixed zones within Leon County and the City of Tallahassee.

The Unit, by nature of patrol, handles crime prevention and detection. The Unit responds to calls for service from citizens, alarm companies and investigates traffic crashes. The Unit conducts initial criminal investigations and crime scene processing. Each deputy is issued a marked patrol vehicle that they take home in order to provide a law enforcement presence in neighborhood communities.

Each unit is outfitted with a Mobile Data Computer (MDC) which enables the Deputies to communicate with other units and dispatch. They can also run tags, drivers licenses, articles and persons through local CJIS, FCIC and NCIC. The deputies also receive their CAD call screens in the car.
