Deputies also participate in crime prevention and detection by actively searching for suspicious persons and activity. Uniform Patrol Deputies also enforce traffic laws and investigate traffic crashes. Deputies conduct initial criminal investigations and crime scene processing. Each deputy is issued a marked patrol vehicle that they take home in order to provide a law enforcement presence in neighborhood communities.
