By working with the county, Monticello benefits from the scale, resources, and regional connections of the Sheriff's Office. The city can also meet residents' public safety expectations in a cost-effective way.
Every year the City Council and Sheriff's Office review the service and make changes as needed. The Sheriff's Office also gives quarterly updates to the City Council, and council members can offer feedback. The updates help law enforcement remain responsive to the community, and the quarterly reports are open to the public.
