About the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office

The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office is a full service law enforcement agency that is organized into three large bureaus: Administrative, enforcement and custody.

According to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office, “The Administration Bureau has several other divisions, the Fiscal Division, Coroner Division, Civil Division, Training Division, Records Division, and Recruiting Division. The Administration staff provides direct support to the Corrections and Enforcement Operations Bureaus. The Professional Standards Division encompasses the following components: Internal Affairs, Employee Testing, Human Resources, Workers’ Compensation and Public Information Requests. A Sheriff’s Commander oversees the Division. The Professional Standards Commander is also the Sheriff’s Office Equal Employment Officer and the Sheriff’s Office Loss Prevention Committee Chairman.

Enforcement Operations Bureau has several other divisions, the Narcotics Division, Investigations Division, Homeland Security Division,  Crime Prevention Unit, Special Operations Division and Other Teams & Units. Chief Deputy John Darling is in charge of the Enforcement Operations Bureau, and Captain Charles Monarque serves as the Bureau Captain.

The Sheriff’s Patrol Division provides a full range of law enforcement and related emergency response services to a resident population of approximately 110,000 (unincorporated areas) over an area of 3,325 square miles.

The Sheriff’s Patrol Division operates out of three stations. The Central Station (Salinas) patrols all of North County, the Salinas Valley south to Gonzales and west, halfway to Monterey. The Coastal (Monterey) Station covers unincorporated areas of the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel Valley and the coastal areas to the San Luis Obispo County line. The South County (King City) Station, provides coverage of southern Monterey County from Gonzales south to the San Luis Obispo County line, and west to the ridgeline of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range.

The Custody Operations Bureau has another division, the Court Services Division, and both are commanded by Chief Ray McLaughlin and Captain Pat Hunton, along with five commanders and nineteen sergeants. At full staff, one hundred and forty four deputies and forty-five professional staff are assigned to the Custody Operations Bureau.”
