In 1998 the City of Patterson Police Department was consolidated into the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department resulting in the formation of Patterson Police Services of the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department. On September 30, 2008, this agreement was extended for an additional five-year term, expiring in June 2013. The Department is currently in negotiation with the City and is requesting to extend the current contract on a month to month basis until the Department can return to the Board for final approval of a new contract.
Currently, Patterson Police Services provides the City of Patterson, population 21,000, with a wide range of municipal law enforcement services including, but not limited to; Administration, Patrol, Traffic Enforcement, Investigations, Records Management, Training, Recruitment, Specialized Enforcement Teams, and Citizen Volunteer Programs. The Department fields four patrol deputies during the peak hours of the day which is augmented by a four person street crimes unit which focuses on proactive approaches to crime reduction and enforcement efforts.
The Patterson City Council, through its City Manager, provides local direction and control of the Department, which allows the City to enjoy the benefits and resources of the Sheriffs Department while at the same time allowing the City to retain, in effect, its local law enforcement autonomy.
