The Levy County Patrol Division has grown over the past 30 years. Initially in 1980 the Patrol Division had a total of 9 deputies that covered the entire 1,103 square miles of Levy County while working complaints and serving civil papers. There was no 24-hour coverage. Believe it or not after 2:00 am everyone was "on call."
In 1984 the Patrol Commander placed one deputy on the midnight shift to cover the whole county. Due to the population growth in Levy County in the last few years our Patrol Division has grown dramatically to 28 Road Deputies, which includes 4 Sergeants, 4 Corporals, 4 K-9 officers, 1 Civil Lieutenant and 5 Civil Officers.
Presently our Deputies work 12 hour shifts, with a total of 7 units on patrol. Deputy's shifts rotate every three months with every other weekend having Friday, Saturday and Sunday off. All of the Deputies have take home cars under the Indianapolis Plan. Starting Salary for Deputies is approximately $28,840. If you would like more information on job opportunities you may contact our
