The Beaver County Sheriff’s Office is the largest law enforcement agency in Beaver County with an authorized complement of a Chief Deputy, Captain, Lieutenant, 20 full-time deputies, 23 part-time deputies, 3 security monitors,   and 7 clerical staff.  Primary responsibilities include security for the Beaver County Courthouse and security for the courtrooms and court staff.  Deputies staff the security checkpoints, are present in the County’s 9 courtrooms, and maintain a presence within the courthouse allowing for a safe environment for county employees and visitors.  The Sheriff’s Office also staffs the security desk at the Human Services Building in Beaver Falls which houses Children and Youth Services, Behavioral Health, and the Office on Aging.
The deputies are tasked with transportation of incarcerated prisoners from the Beaver County Jail located in Hopewell Township near West Aliquippa, to the Courthouse for all criminal proceedings in Beaver County.  Additionally, this responsibility extends to the transportation of inmates at other County Jails, State Correctional Institutions in the Commonwealth, and the extradition of prisoners from out of state facilities to Beaver County. Lastly, the Sheriff’s Office is responsible for the transportation of juveniles who are placed by the courts in a juvenile facility.  While prisoners are in the custody of the Sheriff’s Office, deputies are responsible for moving them to and from their scheduled courtrooms, and maintaining security of them. In 2018, the Beaver County Sheriff’s Office transported 2,842 prisoners to/from the Beaver County Jail, 423 prisoners to/from other county or state facilities, and transported 123 juveniles. 
The Regional Booking Center (RBC), located at the Beaver County Jail, is also run by the Sheriff’s Office, and is staffed by deputies and Corrections Officers.  They handle the intake and processing of prisoners, as well as Video Arraignments and data entry for state and federal databases.  The RBC handled 4,507 bookings as part of 7,566 overall log entries in 2018.  Also headquartered at the Jail, the Warrant Unit is responsible for serving and administratively processing all County Bench Warrants issued by the Court of Common Pleas.  In, 2018 the Warrant Unit and other deputies cleared 1,958 warrants.
The Sheriff’s Office is also responsible for serving final Protection From Abuse Orders (PFAs), which are issued by the courts, generally in regards to domestic violence cases.  Last year, 998 PFAs and returns were processed by the Sheriff’s Office.  Serving civil writs and other civil processes are also a large part of the Sheriff’s Office responsibilities, as 3,599 civil papers were processed, including 2,204 civil writs served by the deputies. 
The Sheriff’s Office maintains two K9 units, both of which are dual-purpose.  One, Rangwo is trained in explosives detection, the other, Ruke narcotics/drug detection.  Both are trained to assist patrol officers and in tracking.  The K9 units are available to assist local, state and federal law enforcement, and are available for school and civic demonstrations.  The Sheriff’s Office also has 7 members on the County’s Emergency Services Unit (ESU) tactical team, that responds to high risk incidents, as well as assisting the County Anit-Drug Task Force with serving Search Warrants.  Sheriff Guy serves on the Advisory Panel for ESU.
