A rural community with dedicated men and women in law enforcement ready to protect and serve approximately 23,000 residents. Payette City employs 12 certified officers and 2 civilian employees. Payette County Sheriff’s Office employs 17 certified officers, 8 dispatchers, 12 detention officers, and 6 civilian employees.
Payette County Sheriff’s Office and Payette Police Department value the benefits of working together to achieve common goals. Joint efforts to enforce the law, respond to emergencies, provide public assistance, and minimize operational costs are evident in Payette County. This is demonstrated by a dispatch center servicing multiple law enforcement jurisdictions and other first responders, a detention facility, and a drug task force team represented by three counties and their incorporated cities.
A critical member of our team is eFORCE® public safety software. Payette County utilizes all the eFORCE® system-wide management tools: Computer Aided Dispatch, Records Management Software, Jail Management Software, Civil Process, and Mug Shots. Success is easily measured by the unique technology to share multi-agency information with a simple “touch of a button” and flexibility to access the system remotely. eFORCE® has provided our departments with excellent customer service. They are timely in assisting with any technical problems and welcomes requests for agency customization. Although change is difficult, upgrading to eFORCE® was relatively smooth. The continuous dedication for system reliability, user-friendly platform, and keeping costs down to a minimum is greatly appreciated. We value the eFORCE® support team, which cannot be measured by any other.
