The Sheridan Police Department Patrol Division is the largest division within the department. It operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year.
Although patrol work can be unpredictable and hazardous at times, there are many rewards for the officers who work patrol. Patrol officers have many functions within the community and pride themselves on their professionalism, dedication, teamwork, excellent customer service skills, and community partnerships.
The Sheridan Police Department is a community-oriented department that strives to enhance both partnerships with the community and our problem-solving capacity. We subscribe to this philosophy because it allows us to prevent, solve, and reduce crime while enhancing the quality of life in Sheridan.
