The Prowers County Sheriff’s Office patrol staff is responsible for the law enforcement needs to all of the communities of Prowers County. They cover a vast area, "over 1500 square miles," and often drive over 30 miles just to respond to a call for service. Our patrol deputies will handle most of these calls without the aid of backup, yet must still investigate each and every call with a high degree of professionalism. Patrol deputies are all sworn peace officers for the State of Colorado and have all attended a certified police academy.
Patrol deputies are required to submit accurate and detailed reports of criminal activity, investigate misdemeanor and felony crimes, prepare and serve arrest and search warrants, and testify in court as needed. Deputies receive regular training throughout the year in a variety of job-related subjects including interview and interrogation, search and seizure, and arrest control techniques.
