Each precinct is commanded by a Lieutenant that is responsible for providing primary law enforcement services to those citizens in their precinct’s area of responsibility. There are also two Lieutenants assigned to overnight field commander duties.

Deputies assigned to patrol are primarily responsible for responding to 911 calls, patrolling neighborhoods and businesses, as well as providing a visible deterrence to crime in Cherokee County.
