Uniform Patrol Unit
The Uniform Patrol Division is the largest and most visible function of the Newton County Sheriff's Office. It is the first line of service to the citizens of Newton County. Uniform Patrol is commanded by a Patrol Captain, with the assistance of an administrative Lieutenant. Each shift is supervised by a Lieutenant, Sergeant, and Corporal. The Deputies assigned to this division provide patrol and emergency law enforcement services to Newton County 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

The Uniform Patrol Division patrols and responds to all calls for service within the 276 square miles of Newton County as well as providing law enforcement services to the cities of Mansfield and Newborn. With the Sheriff's Office providing these cities law enforcement services it allows them to maintain local control and identity while saving significant money, providing their citizens with a larger and more experienced law enforcement agency, with greater resources than small cities could normally afford.

Patrol duties include responding to various criminal and civil complaints, crime prevention, enforcement of traffic laws, and public service assistance. 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 license plates, driver's licenses, articles, and persons through local GCIC and NCIC terminals. The MDC streamlines the dispatch process by allowing Deputies to receive each call for service through the Computer Aided Dispatch system.

The service of our county and its citizens is our top priority. We strive to do this in a respectful and professional manner. Each deputy is empowered, and has the ability, to respond to the problems of our citizens. The deputies are familiar with the areas they patrol so they can respond quickly and notice when things are out of place.
