The support services division is comprised of the following sections and functional units:
- Douglas Regional 9-1-1 communications center
- Public safety technology services

- Concealed handgun permits
The seven commissioned and 66 non-commissioned personnel assigned to these units provide a broad range of services in support of the operational units of the sheriff’s office, and also fulfill many statutory and contractual responsibilities of the sheriff. The division is commanded by Captain Robert McMahan.
The mission of the support services division is to provide innovative, courteous, and professional services to our internal and external customers; to support the operational units of the sheriff’s office by optimizing their productivity and ensuring their safety; and to comply with statutory and contractual obligations, while being ever-mindful of our responsibility to be good stewards of scarce public resources.
