Training, Policies & Procedures

According to legal mandate SB978, commencing on January 1, 2020, all local law enforcement agencies, are required to “conspicuously post on their Internet Web sites, all current standards, policies, practices, procedures, and education and training materials that would otherwise be available to the public if a request was made pursuant the California Pubic Records Act (Chapter 3.5, commencing with Section 6250 of the Division 7 of Title 1 of the Government Code.”

Below you will find that information.  The policies and procedures for the Marin County Sheriff's Office are listed by division.  Some polices have been rescinded and/or not displayed here due to the fact they could jeopardize the safety and security of our operations. 

UPDATE:  In collaboration with members from different communities within Marin County, we are releasing our updated use of force policy. This updated policy is the product of multiple meetings with industry experts and input and suggestions from the community members. The Marin County Sheriff’s Office recognizes the importance of constantly evaluating our policies and procedures to make sure we are in line with 21st century policing.
