Area 2 is comprised of the unincorporated portions of metropolitan Fresno County. We serve the rural outlying homes and farms to the base of the foothills north and to the rural areas east, south, and west of the city of Fresno.
The Area serves several communities within the boundaries of American Avenue to the Madera County line and Chateau Fresno to McCall Avenue. Some of the communities served are Calwa, Malaga, Mayfair, Sunnyside, Fig Garden and Tarpey. Each community is unique and we continually strive to deliver customized service to each of them whenever possible.
This area is home of the Sheriff's Office Patrol Training Unit. There are four Patrol Training Officers assigned to the Area and all entry-level field deputies are assigned here during their training phase. Five detectives are assigned to Area 2/4 and handle armed robbery and property crime investigations. One detective is assigned to the Indian Gaming Grant position and assists patrol and detective with investigations in or near the affected gaming areas of Table Mountain Rancheria and Big Sandy Rancheria.
