The Caroline County Sheriff's Office SERT team are a group of Sheriff's Deputies that meet specialized and stringent criteria set fourth by the Sheriff. They receive hours of intensive training to respond to high risk situations such as executing search warrants on major drug cases and hostage or barricade situations. Members of this team perform their regularly assigned duties and also attend special trainings regularly.
Our K-9 unit consists of Sergeant Wright and his partner, K-9 Ike as well as Master Deputy Williams and his partner, K-9 Duke. The CCSO K-9s specialize in tracking, searching, and narcotics. The K-9 teams are certified annually through the Virginia Police Work Dog Association (VPWDA).
Bicycle operations provide a versatile means of patrolling certain communities in Caroline County and assist in furthering the community policing and crime prevention efforts of this office. Bicycle operations provide for a better exchange of information between the Sheriff's Office and our citizens because the officers are more accessible and approachable on bicycles than in a motor vehicle.
