Columbia County totals approximately 797 square miles. This service area is subdivided into specific geographic areas of directed patrol and investigative responsibility composed of four divisions and two districts. The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division is considered to be the backbone of the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office as it is not only the largest division within the Sheriff’s Office, but it is also the most visible. The Division is comprised of multiple shifts broken into Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta. In addition it maintains the School Resource Deputies, Courthouse Operations to include Bailiff, Transportation, and Civil Process service. Additionally, within the Division there are several specialized teams serving in the capacities of Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), Dive, Marine, Negotiations, Training and K-9. The responsibility of this unit is to maintain a safe and orderly environment for citizens and visitors in all areas of Columbia County. When assistance is requested from the Sheriff’s Office, the first deputy responding will most likely be a member of the Patrol Division. These deputies are in constant contact with the public and answer a variety of calls. Commanded by a Captain and two Lieutenants, the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division is made up of uniformed patrol deputies who provide law enforcement services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. These deputies are encompassed within five zones of the county and assigned to two Districts. District One is made up of Columbia County north of County Road 240 and District Two is everything south of CR 240. Patrol deputies handle a varied range of calls from noise complaints to homicides. For this reason, these deputies must have in-depth knowledge of the law and must be well versed law enforcement officers.

The Administration Division has several departments within the Division that are necessary in order to maintain a fluent and seamless operational work flow within the organization. These departments include Finance, Human Resources, Purchasing, Supply and Computer Systems Administration. As with any organization reporting is a major function, and the Sheriff’s Office is no different. The Sheriff’s Office produces reports and documents associated with each department within the Division. Payroll must be handled every two weeks, accounts must be balanced and monies tracked. Human Resources keeps track of qualifications of new applicants and training requirements of current appointees. The Grants Coordinator compiles data for grant application submission and renewal.

@Columbiasheriff has gotten about 5 calls in the last month of animals (wildlife) that looked sick and possibly had rabies. Just a reminder if you see wildlife in an area they are not commonly in, its best not to approach them. Whether they are sick or not, they could pose a danger to you after all they are wild. Call either FWC or your local law enforcement to report anything out of their normal behavior (which is to run away quickly if seen).
