Each Division (East and West) has a Crime Suppression Unit composed of a Sergeant and a team of deputies. The individuals selected for these units are highly motivated and have demonstrated a proactive approach to preventing crime. These deputies generally drive unmarked patrol cars and are deployed in areas where our crime analysis process has identified a crime trend. They investigate the problem, attempt to identify and arrest perpetrators, and prevent further criminal activity. In addition, they apprehend wanted individuals and provide other services directly related to the prevention of crime and the apprehension of violators. The goal of all of these activities is to improve the safety and quality of life for Polk County's residents and visitors.
