The Patrol Bureau is the most visible element of the Amador County Sheriff's Office and is responsible for providing law enforcement and crime prevention services to the residents of the unincorporated areas of Amador County, as well as the City of Plymouth and the City of Amador City.
There are approximately 27 deputies assigned to our Patrol Bureau who patrol the larger portion of 592 square miles of land and the 12 square miles of water. Approximately 38,400 people live in Amador County.
Deputy Sheriffs work an assigned shift, patrolling an assigned area performing law enforcement and crime prevention work. This includes serving criminal and civil warrants, making arrests, issuing citations and conducting preliminary criminal investigations. Other duties include the serving of civil process and assisting the Investigation Bureau and the Court Security Bureau.
Deputies assigned to the Patrol Bureau operate out of the main office located in Jackson.
We are proud of our Patrol Bureau and the high standard of professional service it provides to the residents of Amador County.
