The Macon County Sheriff's Office provides patrol to the citizens of Macon County; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Macon County Deputies patrol nearly 600 square miles. The patrol division consists of three shifts. Each shift is manned by patrol deputies and an Administrative Lieutenant and an Operations Sergeant. There is one K-9 Unit that is available on call. The K-9 has been instrumental in operations involving narcotics, lost children and fleeing felons. With assistance from the Illinois Department of Transportation, the Macon County Sheriff's Office employs one Deputy for "DUI Enforcement". This aggressive program has no doubt, saved many lives, including the offenders.

1.        Service of Civil/Criminal Subpoenas
2.        Service of Arrest Warrants
3.        Service of Order of Protections
