Logan County Deputies patrol 1800 square miles of rural Northeast Colorado, most of which is agricultural in nature. Logan County Deputies provide 24 hour law enforcement coverage for our citizens. Daily tasks include handling calls for service, patrolling our highways, county roads, and interstate, serving civil paperwork, and traffic enforcement. Deputies are also provided with extra financial opportunities with High Visibility Enforcement (DUI) overtime, and Click It or Ticket (Seatbelt) overtime. Deputies also have the opportunity to test for the Sterling Police Dept. SWAT Team, as we have dedicated spots on the team for members of our agency, which has been a great opportunity for the two agencies working together, ultimately forming a 12 man SWAT Team.
Typical calls for service in Logan County include: Disturbances, Assaults, Harassments, Fraud, Civil Issues, Drug Issues, Suspicious Activity, Vin Checks, etc. The Logan County Sheriff's Office handles approximately 9000 calls for service a year.
Deputies work a 12 hour shift, on a forgiving schedule allowing a 3-day weekend every other week (Fri-Sun off), working 14 days out of a 28 day pay period. Pay is bi-monthly (every 14 days). Health insurance, to include vision and dental is free for those signing up as single. For those signing up under family, the Logan County pays 65% of the cost of the health insurance, and the employee pays for 35%. On average we receive 3-5 new patrol vehicles a year. We participate in the Pink Patch Project and Deputies are allowed to wear pink arm patches on Fridays, in what we call Fight Against Cancer Fridays. Pink patches are also worn during the Tough Enough to Wear Pink night at the Logan County Fair, and the entire month of October.
Logan County has many recreational opportunities. North Sterling State Park, Prewitt Reservoir, and Jumbo Reservoir are all located within Logan County, and offer hunting, fishing and camping opportunities. Logan County also has several public wildlife hunting opportunities.
