Bannock County Patrol Services
Our Patrol Division consists of 22 deputies, who provide twenty-four hour law enforcement services to all the unincorporated areas of the County and to four (4) contracted municipalities. Patrol areas amount to 1142 square miles, with a total county population of approximately 83,000. In addition, some patrol officers belong to our STAR (Special Tactics and Response)Team, and have received special training to handle hostage and other high risk incidents. Bannock County Sheriff's Department started a rural Mountain Bike Patrol Unit, which we use to patrol areas within the County where instances make it more advantageous to use bicycles rather than patrol cars.
