Divisions

In order to fulfill its mission, the Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office is organized into several operational divisions. Each division is responsible for conducting specialized duties. All divisions are highly integrated; operating as a single team. The divisions continually fulfill the mission of the Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office through a strict adherence to excellence and teamwork.

Administration Division


The Administration Division provides a variety of management and support services for the entire Sheriff’s Office.


Support Services


The BECO SO Support Services Division is the backbone of the Sheriff’s Office. Our 911 Communications & Dispatch Center, Records, Property & Evidence, as well as the Civil Process are all part of this Division. The Sheriff’s Office relies heavily on the hard work and dedication of our Support Services to help us fulfill our mission.


Patrol Division


Few would dispute the fact that deputies assigned to the Patrol Division are the backbone of the Sheriff's Office. BECO SO Patrol Division provides a professional response to your call for help and are almost always the first to arrive on a scene to give aid and comfort the injured. Additionally, our Patrol deputies are able to work on special assignments such as Boat & Water Patrol, or be part of one of our specialty teams such as MN River Valley Drug Task Force, MN River Valley Tactical Response Team, Dive Team and the K-9 Unit.
They often put themselves in harm's way every day they are on the job to protect and serve the citizens of Blue Earth County and they do it with little recognition or fanfare.


Investigations Division


The BECO SO Investigations Division investigates major cases involving person crimes, property and narcotics crimes and computer crimes. Our goal is to clear the innocent and assist in the prosecution of the guilty while maintaining the highest standards of honesty, integrity and professionalism.


Jail Division


The BECO SO Jail Division is responsible for providing a safe and secure jail facility which operates professionally, respectfully and efficiently. We house in-custody, pre-trial and sentenced offenders of the law. In addition to providing the basic needs to our inmates, we offer transports for court appearances, work programs and rehabilitation programs while in our custody. The Programs Division works directly with the Corrections Division and is responsible for providing inmate programs and supervising inmates that are assigned to alternative sanctions.
