Court Division

The Court Division includes four full-time deputy sheriffs and several part-time deputies. They have the responsibility of providing security and maintaining order in the county court system. Heavy case load and multiple, simultaneous sessions make security in our courts a difficult task that is always changing. Deputies utilize both hand-held and stationary metal detectors to promote safety within the courts. Each year, the court security deputies seize hundreds of dangerous items from people such as knives, drugs, and other contraband.

Snowmobile Unit

The Sheriff's Office has two deputies assigned to the Snowmobile Unit. The deputies operate at various times and for special events. The deputies perform routine patrol of popular snowmobile trails and concentrating on areas where there have been complaints filed regarding violations of various laws and regulations regarding snowmobiles. They work closely with other agencies and the snowmobile clubs located throughout our County to make the trails in our county a safe place for families and tourists. Read more
