Patrol Division                           

The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office provides patrol services throughout over 2,400 square miles of Pueblo county twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week and three hundred sixty-five days a year. The Patrol Division provides continuous available units to:

  • Respond to calls for service
  • Deter crimes by visible patrol
  • Detect, apprehend, and process persons involved in criminal activity
  • Recover and return lost or stolen property
  • Ensure the safe movement of vehicular and pedestrian traffic
  • Provided follow-up investigation of offenses when warranted by time or circumstances
  • Reduce both immediate and potential hazards to the community

Patrol Division personnel are divided into three shifts. Each shift is directed by a lieutenant and two sergeants. Deputy positions are distributed between all three shifts based upon the needs of the community.

 Within the patrol division are these services that are provided to the community:

The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Deputies assigned to Colorado State University-Pueblo continued to serve a growing population, both on campus and at two off campus locations. Enrollment for the current year is up 11% over the previous year and calls for service continue to increase.

The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office canines are trained to protect deputies, search building and other areas for hiding suspects, track suspects or lost persons, search for the odor of drugs and search for evidence. The Canine Teams are members of the United States Police Canine Association Region 14.

Working both as a patrol unit and with the ability to perform Search and Rescue in remote terrain, the Mounted Patrol is a useful addition to the patrol section. Both civilians and deputies are able to lend themselves and their horse to the service of Pueblo County. This unit often teams with the Pueblo Police Department during community events.

Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor recognized that the threat of improvised explosive devices for the city and county were a major concern. The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office had at one time a bomb unit with resources and the city had a certified bomb unit. The sheriff believes in reducing duplication of services while at the same time combining resources where practical for a bigger impact. The Metro Bomb Unit is a metropolitan effort that has regional outreach.

This Team has been instrumental in resolving several high-risk incidents, both in Pueblo County and in other jurisdictions. The SWAT Team consistently performs at a level beyond what the normal patrol deputy is able to accomplish. They also train consistently in all types of weather and adverse conditions. This is a Team of dedicated Deputies who volunteer to do this particular job, at great risk to themselves and for no extra pay, 24/7/365. The Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT), the SWAT Medic Team and a Tactical K-9 element continue to be vital attachments to the SWAT Team.

The (PCSO) Narcotics Unit was implemented when Sheriff Taylor took office in 2007. This unit works diligently to investigate, control and prevent the illegal sale, possession or manufacturing of illicit drugs in Pueblo County. This unit is responsible for everything from executing search warrants to the surveillance of suspected narcotics manufactures and dealers.
