The Patrol Division is made up of men and women that provide all facets of law enforcement services to the citizens of DeKalb County.
This includes calls for service, responding to accidents, and weather-related problems. The Sheriff’s Office covers approximately 1100 miles of rural roads within 634 square miles providing police service to rural residents throughout the county, as well as those who live in towns and villages. The Patrol Division also assists many other towns and cities within the county when requested by any agency. In 1994, the Sheriff’s Office established a police partnership with Kishwaukee Community College and currently has two deputies assigned to the college for police services.
