A and B Squad Patrol
The Deputies assigned to the rotating patrol squads are primarily responsible for patrolling outside of the city limits and providing law enforcement services to the citizens of Montgomery County. They are responsible for responding to calls for service as well as vacation home and business checks. Additionally, the patrol deputies work traffic enforcement on the roadways of Montgomery County.
C Squad Patrol
The Deputies assigned to the C Squad are used as a “swing” shift primarily responsible for patrolling areas based on crime trend spikes. The supervisors of these units work closely with our Investigative Division following statistics and determining the locations, days, times when crimes are more likely to occur. When a crime trend is identified the members of these squads are assigned to concentrate their efforts in those areas with the mission of preventing further crimes and arresting those responsible for crimes.
The Deputies assigned to the traffic enforcement unit are specially equipped with motorcycles and speed detection devices. You will see them in the mornings and afternoons in our school zones helping keep the students of the Montgomery County Schools safe. In between their efforts in the school zones the traffic units enforce traffic laws on the roadways of Montgomery County.
The Deputies assigned to the K-9 unit are all specially trained to work with a K-9 partner. The unit is comprised of six K-9 teams, five of the dogs are trained in apprehension work and narcotics detection, one of the dogs is trained in apprehension work and explosives detection. The K-9 teams assist the patrol and swing shift deputies by responding to calls for service which may require the special skills of the trained K-9. The K-9 unit also assists outside agencies and organizations with narcotics sweeps and bomb sweeps.
