The Patrol Division operates under the direction of Captain Harley Sowell.  There are four shifts consisting of six deputies.  The patrol shifts are made up of a patrol lieutenant, patrol sergeant, 3 patrol deputies and one K9 unit.  Part-time and reserve deputies supplement them as needed and when available.

Patrol deputies are responsible for answering and handling all complaint calls and calls for service or assistance from members of the public.  They are responsible for patrolling unincorporated areas of the county and providing a visible presence as a proactive measure to help deter crime.  Saline County is divided into three rural patrol areas, with daily area assignments being made by the shift supervisor.  Deputies respond to complaint calls, crimes in progress, take reports, serve warrants, serve civil papers, investigate accidents, and perform a wide array of related duties.  They also provide assistance to other law enforcement agencies in Saline County and surrounding areas when called upon.

Sheriff's Deputies have concurrent criminal jurisdiction throughout both the incorporated and unincorporated areas of the County with Constables and Municipal Police Officers.
