Supplementing the primary policing of the RCMP are enhanced services provided by the County Patrol Division's Patrol Officers. Both organizations work collaboratively to ensure the safety and security of ratepayers.

County Patrol is mandated to investigate and enforce Provincial laws like the Traffic Control Act and associated regulations like the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Control Act and the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act. As well, the enforcement of Mountain View County Bylaws is the responsibility of the Patrol Division according to the Municipal Government Act.
