The patrol division of the Preble County Sheriff’s Office consists of several deputies under the supervision Chief Deputy Mike Spitler and Captains Robert Schneider and Brad Moore. Patrol deputies are responsible for answering calls for service, traffic enforcement, criminal investigations, civil process and warrant service, and assisting in jail or dispatch operations when necessary.

Deputies are primarily responsible for law enforcement services in the unincorporated areas of the county, as well as several of the villages who either have no law enforcement of their own, or may only have part time officers.

The road patrol is supplemented by several part time deputies, and at times, by Special Deputies. You can learn more about Special Deputies here.
