The Mesa County Sheriff’s Office Street Crimes Unit (SCU) was developed in 2006. The SCU has created partnerships with many agencies to provide a directed policing unit to serve the citizens of Mesa County. The SCU assignments vary based upon current criminal activity and the needs of the community.
Since 2006, the SCU is relied upon to fulfill a need in our community. The SCU reduces crime in our community by identifying and arresting those who victimize the citizens of Mesa County. This has been accomplished by arresting wanted fugitives, investigating neighborhood drug dealers, increased enforcement activities in higher crime areas, or assisting other governmental organizations in locating and arresting wanted criminals in the Mesa County area.
