Captain, Patrol Operations
2490 Radio Ln.
Patrol Operations is divided between two Patrol Stations and three Patrol Sub-Stations.
The Shasta County Sheriff’s Patrol Operations area of responsibility encompasses approximately 3,700 square miles of unincorporated area of Shasta County and is bordered with mountain ranges on three sides of the county.
Patrol Operations is directed by one Division Commander Captain and one Burney Lieutenant. The main Patrol Operations station is located in Redding and serves the many communities located within the north end of the Sacramento Valley known locally as the Redding Basin.
The Burney Station serves the Intermountain Area including Burney, Fall River Mills, McArthur, and many other smaller intermountain communities. There are three Patrol Sub-Stations; Shingletown and Lakehead serve their respective outlaying communities and a third sub-station, shared with Anderson Police Department, is located at the Anderson Outlets in the Southern end of Shasta County.
Shasta County is a vast area with many small communities. Patrol Operations strives, with limited resources, to protect and serve each community and Deputies are generally considered the backbone of the County Law Enforcement. The focus and commitment of the Shasta County Sheriff’s Patrol Operations is protection of the public, the aggressive investigation of crime through diligent follow-up investigation, and providing outstanding service to the public.
The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office works in partnership with the Northern California Regional Intelligence Center and Central Valley HIDTA (High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area) to operate our Automatic License Plate Reader (ALPR) systems.
