The patrol division's primary function is traffic enforcement. The patrol deputies are also directed to perform non-traffic related type duties and assignments which occur on a daily basis. A patrol deputy from this division is assigned the duty of recreation officer. The recreation officer conducts ATV, boat, and snowmobile law enforcement operations, as well as enforcing county ordinance and state statute as it pertains to environmental issues.
