What is the difference between a Sheriff's Deputy, Police Officer, and the Highway Patrol?
- A Deputy Sheriff (like Ventura County Sheriff) works for the County Sheriff's Department.
- A Police Officer (like Los Angeles Police Department) works for the City.
- The California Highway Patrol provides law enforcement functions in state-operated facilities and provides traffic-related enforcement in various communities as well as on freeways.
All three are peace officers and are authorized under the California penal code with equal police powers anywhere in California. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
