Sheriff Mark Dannels continues his commitment to reach out to all citizens of Cochise County.

On June 3rd, 2013, a new unit within the Sheriff’s Office, the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office Ranch Patrol was initiated. The purpose of the Ranch Patrol is to provide a liaison between the ranchers in our county and the Sheriff’s Office Border Interdiction Team, as well as the local federal agencies such as the Border Patrol, DEA and ICE.

County citizens, especially those that are out in the rural areas of our county on a daily basis, have valuable knowledge and intelligence that is extremely useful in combating the human and drug smuggling issues we face. We are looking forward to forming constructive relationships with these ranchers and using the information they can provide.

If you have any information or questions please contact Deputy Mike Magoffin at (520) 384-7055 or at:
