Department Overview

The Sheriff is a constitutionally elected official whose primary responsibilities are to enforce local, state and Federal laws, operate the county jail and provide security to the Superior Court. The department also operates countywide emergency communications dispatch services, oversees the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), assumes the duties of the county coroner, and provides patrol services in unincorporated areas of the County.

FY 2023-2024 Continuous Improvement Focus

Business Process Improvement Initiative
The Marin County Sheriff Coroner's Office will implement a user survey system using software that generates a text message to citizens calling into the dispatch center. The survey tool will allow the Sheriff’s organization to poll residents on the quality of the public safety services they receive from our patrol personnel and dispatchers after they called our communications center.
What does Success Look Like?
The desired outcome is to utilize the survey data to see where our services need improvement and where we are excelling. Based on the information contained in the survey results, we will assess how our patrol staff is responding to calls for service, see how our dispatchers are processing calls, and gauge the level of satisfaction from the public.
