  • The road division is responsible for patrolling Ross County, enforcing all laws and answering calls for service. Ross County, being the second largest county in Ohio in terms of area, has been divided into five districts to assure rapid response times and high visibility to deter crimes. By dividing the county into districts and assigning the same deputies to work these districts on a daily basis, residents become familiar with the deputy and vice-versa. This allows the deputies to become more familiar with the problems associated within the districts and provides a good link to information.
