Wright County Sheriff Shifts and Unit Number Legend

Wright County Law Enforcement unit numbers are organized by four digit code. For example we will use unit 3210. The first number represents the quadrant of the county this unit is assigned to. In our example 3210 is in quadrant 3 Northeast. The second number represents the beat the car is assigned to. In our example 3210 is working beat 2 Monticello. The third number represents the shift the Deputy is working. In our example 3210 is assigned to shift 1, 0600hrs to 1600hrs. The fourth number is which car or number of cars assigned to that area. In our example 3210 is the first car in the area. Quick note some areas are assigned multiple cars. Monticello is one of those areas. Monticello will usually have two cars out so 3210's partner would be 3211. This is subject to change for county staffing or per Watch Commander for that day/shift.

Exception to this format are the police departments in Wright County. Police department shift and unit numbers are different but still follow close to the same rule. For this example we will use 4415. 4415 is assigned to quadrant 4 Southeast, and is working beat 4 Buffalo due to 4415 being a Buffalo Police unit. 4415 third and fourth number represent the officers badge number which would be 415. Annandale Police and Howard Lake Police follow the same unit number structure as Buffalo Police. See the above chart for badge number structure.

ALL units assigned to quadrant 1 are working the whole county and/or are part of WCSO Administration.

This is the general structure of day to day patrol numbers, of course there are exceptions that have been labeled above in the Radio ID chart. Bellow you'll find the shift for WCSO.
