The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office Operations Bureau
is made up of seven units under the command of a Sheriff's Captain. The most visible of these units is
Patrol. These deputies are responsible for responding to emergency calls
for service, criminal investigations, and crime prevention through neighborhood
and beat patrols. Patrol has one Main Station in
Eureka, outstations in
Garberville, Hoopa, and
McKinleyville, and five resident deputy posts.
The Main Station deputies are responsible for patrolling the unincorporated areas of the county
from the Trinidad area to the Stafford area.
The Garberville deputies patrol from the
Stafford area south to the Humboldt county line. The correctional officer
works at the station processing arrests made in the southern Humboldt area
and transporting them to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility when necessary.
The Hoopa station deputies patrol the eastern
part of Humboldt County including Willow Creek and Hoopa. The correctional
officer there performs the same duties as the Garberville correctional officer.
There are four resident deputy posts in Humboldt
County. The communities of Orick, Orleans, Bridgeville, and
Shelter Cove are assigned a deputy to live and patrol them.
