Law Enforcement Bureau
Lt. Jimmy Anderson, Patrol Watch Commander

The Levy County Patrol Division has grown over the past 30 years. Initially in 1980, the Patrol Division had a total of 9 deputies that covered the entire 1,103 square miles of Levy County while working complaints and serving civil papers. There was no 24-hour coverage. Believe it or not after 2:00 am everyone was “on call.”

In 1984 the Patrol Commander placed one deputy on the midnight shift to cover the whole county. Due to the population growth in Levy County in the last few years, our Patrol Division has grown dramatically.

Presently our Deputies work 12 hour shifts. Deputy’s shifts rotate every three months with every other weekend having Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off. All of the Deputies have take-home cars under the Indianapolis Plan. Starting Salary for Deputies is approximately $36,000.

K-9 Unit

The duties of a K9 officer depend on the type of dog with which the officer is paired. He is first and foremost an officer whose task is to ensure the safety of the community. The K-9 Unit employs some of the bravest and hardest working members of the Levy County Sheriff’s Office.

These dogs come to work every day with their handlers and ride a twelve-hour shift just like the rest of our patrol deputies. They endure many dangers that could cause them injury or death, but they never hesitate to serve and protect when called upon. The canine section utilizes highly trained dogs which were imported from Germany and receive monthly training in narcotics detection and patrol work. The K-9 unit maintains a full plate of activities from drug detection to criminal apprehension.

Marine Unit

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office Marine Unit is a specialized unit that assists in missing/lost person(s) cases related to water incidents. Through the use of their specialized equipment, this Unit can assist in search and rescue. The Marine Unit is utilized as well during cases of natural disasters, where the preservation of life and property take precedence.
