  The Medina County Sheriff's Office's Patrol Division has remained one of the best-equipped units in the area. The Mobile Data Terminals, or MDTs, used in all patrol fleet vehicles have seen recent upgrades to include access to most BMV and criminal files kept by the State of Ohio and other states. Deputies are now able to access many of the Attorney General's files through the State's OHLEG database, which also allows Deputies and officers from around the State to view BMV photos for positive identification, right from the cruisers in the field. The MDTs also allow Deputies to be dispatched to calls for service through "silent dispatch", which provides better, more complete information, faster.

  Through the first three months of 2007, MCSO Deputies have effected 55 Active Felony Arrests and 17 DUI Arrests. These include arrests for Drug Use & Trafficking, Domestic Violence, Felonious Assaults and other Violent Crimes. The Patrol Division also assists other departments and agencies in arresting wanted fugitives that are located in Medina County. In addition to arrests made by the Patrol Division, Patrol Deputies are often the first responders to the scene of major crimes, and are an integral part of many other investigations conducted by our own Detective Bureau and other State and Federal Agencies.

  2007 has brought some changes to the Patrol Division and Enforcement efforts at the Medina County Sheriff's Office. As a result of several large seizures of drug monies and contraband, MCSO has added a Drug Interdiction Unit. This unit is given the responsibility of seeking out drug activity, use and trafficking, as well as seizing drugs, contraband and money associated with these crimes. The Interdiction Team has been self-sufficient in funding, since the majority of seized monies goes back into the MCSO Funds. This unit also has added a full-time SUV to the fleet, which is pictured below, as well as specialized equipment used in the search of vehicles, buildings and other property.
