The Patrol Division works hard to ensure our citizens, business community, and visitors feel safe and secure in Kitsap County.  Using effective crime-fighting and community outreach, the Patrol Division builds the public’s trust and community partnerships through open communication and transparency.


The most important resources within the Patrol Division are the people.  Our primary objective is to maintain a professional, highly trained, and well-educated force of deputies to provide the community with the highest level of police service and protection.


The Patrol Division is constantly evolving with our training and technology.   By the deputies engaging our community members, we understand the areas where we can improve, refine, or streamline.
