Due to budget reductions, the Fresno County Sheriff's Office has been affected by numerous layoffs of professional staff. Deputies and detectives still work out of the substations. However, they are currently closed to the public.

The Sheriff's Office Patrol and Support Bureau have dedicated deputy sheriffs and professional staff ready to serve the many communities throughout the County of Fresno. We are dedicated to our partnerships with those we serve based on mutual communication, mutual cooperation, and mutual trust.

The members of the Sheriff's Office are expected to liaison with citizens in the community, businesses in the community and service organizations. We also assist and serve other law enforcement agencies and emergency service agencies in order to provide excellent law enforcement services, reduce crime, and increase the quality of life for the people we serve.

The Fresno County Sheriff's Office provides Patrol services for its more than 6,000 square miles. In 1983, patrol services were decentralized and divided into four Patrol areas. Each area is commanded by a lieutenant who supervises field services from a substation located in each of the areas.

The Sheriff's Office main headquarters is still located in downtown Fresno.
