Lieutenant Tom Hodgson
The Utah County Sheriff's Office provides law enforcement services to the unincorporated areas of Utah County and contract cities, as well as co-operative support services to local, state and federal law-enforcement agencies and organizations. Patrol Deputies take initial reports on all crimes investigated by the Sheriff’s Office including everything from citizen contacts and investigating traffic accidents to responding on high risk crimes in progress calls such as aggravated assaults or homicides. They are also responsible for the pro-active enforcement of all drug, alcohol, and traffic violations. Other duties fulfilled by Patrol Deputies include Community Oriented Policing (C.O.P.) programs to the public which include radKids, D.A.R.E., Neighborhood Watch, and Public Safety Fairs. Providing all of these services require deputies who are properly trained and well equipped. More importantly, we need the public’s help and support in accomplishing our mission. This must be a team effort. Specifically, each citizen can do their part and commit to obey the law and educate themselves on the many safety and crime prevention tips out there. Lastly, we need your input with how we can better serve you and help keep our neighborhoods peaceful and safe. Please feel free to call anytime with any feedback, questions, comments, or concerns.
