Members of Patrol Services are the backbone of the Greene County Sheriff's Office. They represent the face of the agency to the public and are the first responders to emergency calls to all unincorporated areas of the county. The responsibilities of a Patrol Deputy include serving writs and warrants, conducting traffic law enforcement, answering calls for service, and collecting evidence at crime scenes, all the while providing a high level of customer service.


Each Deputy assigned to Patrol Services is required to pass a Field Training Program taught by a Senior Deputy for six weeks or longer. They are also required to maintain all training requirements for their State Certification.
