Patrol units (uniformed deputies) are responsible for the day-to-day
patrolling of the county, answering complaints, serving civil process,
criminal warrants, and responding to crime scenes and crimes in
progress. Patrol officers often provide back-up for the five city
police departments in Giles County.
addition, the Sheriff's Department provides a deputy as school resource
officer for Richland High School, D.A.R.E instructor, and a variety
of other miscellaneous positions.
