The County is divided into two sectors, The North zone and the South zone. Deputies are assigned a zone prior to each shift and are responsible for all calls in that sector.

Duties and responsibilities of Deputies include preliminary investigations, preventative patrols, response to calls for service, traffic enforcement, incident reporting, warrant service, service of court ordered papers, and providing assistance to any other agency upon request.

In 2009 there were approximately 8,000 court ordered papers that were served in Cape Girardeau County

The patrol division implements preventative patrols in areas of the County that are more prone to crime. We believe that high visibility in these areas is a way to deter crime.

The patrol division conducts approximately 2500 area checks annually. Preventative patrols help in the reduction of crime and reduce the fear of crime.

Cape Girardeau County is a growing community with approximately 80,000 residents. The Sheriff's Office averages approximately 18,000 incidents per year. While not all of these incidents require written reports, a large number require making contact with the complainant either at their residence or over the phone.Combined with the large land area and the population of the County, Deputies often find themselves responding from call to call.

Below is a list of the crimes reported in the Missouri Uniform Crime Reporting Program for Cape Girardeau County in 2009. Violent crimes include murder (manslaughter), rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. Property crimes include burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, robbery, and arson.

-George E. Pataki
