The Patrol Division is responsible for approximately 728 square miles of land mass and waterways that are divided into two  separate zones -- the East Zone and the West Zone.  Each zone is further broken down into three sectors, excluding the town of Rocky Mount, which is allotted its own separate zone.  This breakdown of patrol districts not only allows for a more concentrated effort of focus for each assigned deputy, it also allows for a quicker response time and more personalized service to the citizens of the County.

Deputies assigned to the Patrol Division are primarily responsible for enforcing the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia and any local statues and ordinances.  They are also required to provide a range of other duties to the citizens of the County including: help locate runway juveniles, provide traffic safety, execute car unlocks, work criminal investigations, and other additional duties as deemed  necessary.

Individuals seeking employment in the Patrol Division must undergo a rigorous screening process to help ensure that only the most qualified candidates are allowed into this demanding field of labor.  This rigorous screening process includes: reading and comprehension testing, physical agility testing, one or more panel interviews, a lifestyle polygraph test, and a thorough  background investigation.  Only after an applicant passes all areas of the screening process can they be considered a viable candidate.

Another SCAM is being attempted around our county. This one is stating they are from the Franklin County Sheriff's Office and even uses one of our administration telephone numbers.
