Grayson County Sheriff Department is comprised of the Administration Unit, Patrol Unit, Corrections Unit, Reserves Unit, and Sheriff's Posse. One-third of the County’s population is under the Grayson County Sheriffs Law Enforcement. This includes unincorporated areas within the county and three small cities without a police department.

The Sheriff is responsible for enforcing estray laws, collecting fines and court costs, conducting court-ordered sales of real estate or other items, providing security of the district and county courts, serving of civil and criminal process such as subpoenas, warrants, capias and various writs such as writs of attachment in child custody cases. More than 29,929 calls are answered by the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office each year. The Civil Section collects approximately $1,240,611.14 and 7,506 persons are processed through the County Jail yearly.

Appropriate tactics for hostage situations or difficult arrests are assigned to The Special Response Team Unit. The Special Operations Response Team (SORT), is a highly trained unit which deals with inmate-initiated problems in the jail. The Grayson County Sheriff’s Dive Team is used frequently to search for persons or property in county lakes and ponds and the Boat Patrol enforces laws on the Texas side of Lake Texoma. The Auxiliary units act as an important backup up for the regular full-time officers and work a minimum number of hours each month.
