About the Division

The Davidson County Sheriff's Office provides law enforcement services 24 hours a day, every day of the year, to the citizens of Davidson County. The primary provider of this service is the Patrol Division, which places one or more deputies in all areas of the County. These deputies are trained to provide information, assistance, and resolution to problems that may require their attention.
