Patrol Division

Municipal police departments regularly patrol their own cities. The Sheriff’s Office provides similar law enforcement services to 11 communities in the county –Watford City, Arnegard, Rawson, Alexander, Cartwright, East Fairview, Dore, Grassy Butte, Keene, New Town, Mandaree.

Patrol Services responds to calls for service 24 hours a day, such as medicals, alarms, vehicle crashes, motorist assists, and domestic disputes as well as reports of property offenses and fraud. This unit assists citizens and other law enforcement agencies. 

While engaging in community policing practices, Patrol Services actively patrols each community to prevent and deter crime, as well as enforce local, state and federal laws. Initial reports of felony-level offenses are taken by Patrol Services and then forwarded to the Investigations Division for further investigation. 

McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office has an expanded role, providing jurisdiction and authority throughout the county. As a result, the McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office collaborates with and supports local law enforcement agencies in a variety of ways, programs, and activities.
