The Cross County Sheriff's Office Auxiliary program operates under the direction of Chief Deputy Larry Jones. The primary purpose of this program is to give people who enjoy law enforcement a chance to put their skills to work while they maintain their full-time jobs outside of the department. Auxiliary Deputies supplement patrol for full-time deputies, transport prisoners, take reports, make arrests, serve warrants and provide security for public events. Auxiliary Deputies must be 21 years old and complete a physical and psychological exam prior to their appointment. They also must complete an auxiliary/part-time II course with a minimum of 110 hours of training, which includes classroom, practical exercises, aerosol defensive spray and weapons training. The Cross County Sheriff's Auxiliary Deputies are a vital part of the Sheriff's Office and we are proud of the hard work and dedication these officers provide every day.
