Division Director
- Captain Daniel Sandberg

The Patrol Division of the Brown County Sheriff’s Office is led by Captain Daniel Sandberg. It consists of six lieutenants, ten sergeants, and 76 Patrol Officers, making up over 60% of the department’s sworn staff. The Patrol Division operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In order to provide this coverage, the Division is split into four shifts: the day shift (7am-3pm), afternoon shift (3pm-11pm), night shift (11pm-7am), and the power shift (7pm-3am). The power shift is designed to overlap the afternoon and night shifts, providing additional officers at peak periods. The Brown County patrol sections are divided into six sections, three east of the Fox River, and three west. A minimum of one lieutenant, one sergeant, and five officers are on patrol in the county at any given time and are responsible for over 300 sq. miles of unincorporated areas within Brown County. The division handles over 50,000 incidents annually.

In addition to the county patrols, the Sheriff’s Office is contracted to provide 24 hour coverage in the Villages of Allouez (pop. 13,992), Howard (pop. 17,399), Suamico (pop. 11,631) and Bellevue (pop. 14,760) along with approximately 80 hours a week of coverage to the village of Denmark (pop.2,169). Allouez, Howard, Suamico, Bellevue and Denmark also utilize “Directed Enforcement Officers” through the Sheriff’s Patrol Division. . These Officers focus on long term solutions to problems ranging from village ordinance violations to traffic safety concerns. All officers assigned to these contracted areas are encouraged to adopt principals of community oriented policing.

The Patrol Division has numerous responsibilities, some of which are:
  • Calls for service (Disturbances, missing persons, thefts, burglaries, etc.)
  • Enforce state laws and local ordinances
  • Vehicle crash investigation
  • Assisting other local law enforcement agencies when called upon

    In addition to these duties, the Patrol Division provides valuable community service through traffic control, security details and dignitary protection to public and private organizations. Officers also make public service appearances on topics such as Personal Safety, Workplace Violence, ID Theft Prevention and Neighborhood Watch coordination.

    Specialty units within the Division are:
  • K-9
  • Field Training Officers (Training new Officer candidates)
  • Traffic Enforcement
  • Crash Reconstruction
  • Boat Patrol / Rescue
  • Snowmobile Patrol / Rescue
Veteran Officers are appointed to these positions by the Sheriff through an interview process.
