Logan County Deputies patrol 1800 square miles of rural Northeast Colorado, most of which is agricultural. We provide 24 hour coverage for the citizens of Logan County. Daily tasks for Deputies include handling calls for service, serving civil papers, traffic enforcement, and patrolling within the small towns in Logan County. Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff's Office also have the opportunity to work overtime with DUI and Seatbelt Enforcement opportunities.
Typical calls for service in Logan County include: Civil issues, harassments, fraud, assaults, domestic violence, drug issues, vin checks, suspicious parties, driving complaints, etc. The Logan County Sheriff's Office handles approximately 7000 calls for service a year.
Deputies work 12 hour shifts, and get a three day weekend off every other weekend (Fri-Sun), working 14 days out of a 28 day pay period. Pay is bi-monthly (every 14 days). Health insurance to include dental and vision is free for those signing up as single. On average we receive 3-4 new patrol vehicles a year, and keep updated with all of the equipment needed to be successful in the field. The Logan County Sheriff's Office also participates in the Pink Patch Project, and Deputies are allowed to wear pink patches every Friday in what we call "Fight Against Cancer Friday's." Deputies can also wear their pink patches the entire month of October, and Tough Enough to Wear Pink night at the Logan County Fair.
The Logan County Fair is our biggest event of the year, to include rodeo's, a demolition derby, a carnival, and typically a bigger name in the country music industry, that performs on Saturday night of the fair.
Logan County has many recreational opportunities to explore when Deputies are not working. North Sterling State Park, Prewitt Reservoir, and Jumbo Reservoir are all within Logan County, and all of these locations offer camping and fishing. Logan County has several public wildlife areas that offer hunting opportunities for both small game and big game species. Pawnee Buttes is just a short drive away down Highway 14 for those who like to hike in the outdoors.
