Our Patrol Division is the most visible and largest division of our agency. This Division consists of sworn deputies who are trained in every aspect of law enforcement and patrol procedures. The Investigations Division of the Sheriff’s Office holds the responsibility of investigating crimes that warrant further investigation beyond the initial report taken by the Patrol Division. The goal is to provide a safe and secure environment that promotes positive inmate behavior.  The Carson City Sheriff’s Office Communications 911 Center provides an efficient and expedient communications link between the citizens of Carson City and emergency responders. The Civil Division staff processes concealed weapon permits, felon registrations, trial jurors summons, writs of garnishments, writs of possession, restraining orders, subpoenas and complaints.  The Business Office of the Sheriff is responsible for all of the fiscal financial matters of the department, payroll, grants management, accounts receivable/payable, supplies and services. The Sheriff’s Office not only performs all of the duties and responsibilities of any other Sheriff’s Office in the state of Nevada, but it also performs all of the public safety functions and responsibilities of any defined local police department.
