The Patrol Division provides the most visible police services to the community. Officers assigned to the Patrol Operations are those with whom the public is most likely to come in contact. They respond to emergencies, alarms, reports of crimes, calls for service and provide traffic enforcement.
The Patrol Division provides a range from preliminary investigations of major crimes, to problem solving complex quality of life issues. Officers provide these services 24-hours a day, 7-days-a-week and are assigned to one of three patrol sectors. While on patrol, officers focus on outstanding public service with an emphasis on proactive responses to neighborhood crime and public order issues.
