Administrative Office Hours:
M-F 8:00am - 5:00pm
Patrol deputies are responsible for answering and handling all complaint calls and calls for service or assistance from members of the public. They are responsible for patrolling a county of 445 square miles. They patrol all county roads and provide a visible presence as a proactive measure to help deter crime. Deputies patrol and enforce state laws and county ordinances throughout Tishomingo County.  
In addition to those duties, deputies make frequent building checks throughout the county to ensure the integrity of doors and windows and to check for tampering.
Patrol deputies have the following responsibilities: responding to complaint calls, taking reports, making arrests, transporting prisoners, serving warrants, writs, subpoenas and civil papers for the court, bailiff duty, traffic control and drug eradication.  They investigate accidents on county roads and perform a wide array of related duties.  They also provide assistance to other law enforcement agencies in Tishomingo County and surrounding areas when called upon.
Patrol deputies respond to calls received by the 911 center and the sheriff's office.  After responding the deputies gather the necessary information for a report.  Once the report is written, it is forwarded up the chain of command.  When the report is approved, it is turned over to the Criminal Investigation Division (CID).  CID reviews these reports and begins an active investigation.  Members of the Patrol Division must be well rounded in all facets of police work.  They must know how to do a lot of everything because they lay the groundwork for successful closure to all cases.  Normally, there are a minimum of two deputies per shift and they are supported by Auxiliary Deputies as needed and when available.


Piney Grove Recreation Area

In addition to normal patrol duties, the Tishomingo County Sheriff's Office maintains an agreement with the United States Army Corps of Engineers to provide patrol to the USACE recreational areas located in Tishomingo County. 

During peak summer months an additional deputy is assigned to patrol Old Bridge Beach as well as Piney Grove Beach to ensure these areas maintain a family-friendly atmosphere. 

Additional patrols are made throughout the Piney Grove Campground as well as all boat ramps located on Bay Springs Lake.


If there is illegal activity occurring in a location and you would like a deputy to patrol this area more frequently, you may submit an extra patrol request online or by email.

Requests for extra patrol are added to a list and distributed directly to deputies to alert them of areas where citizens have witnessed possible illegal activities.  Requests placed online will be added as soon as possible after submission.  Requests needing immediate attention should be relayed via telephone to the Sheriff's Office at 662-423-7000.
