Police Patrol Division

The Patrol Division is responsible for the daily response to calls and the proactive enforcement of laws. In general, when a citizen sees a police car driving around, a patrol officer operates it. Patrol Officers are the "first line" of defense against crime and disorder. They are generally responsible for neighborhood, business and street patrols. They respond to everything from car crashes to identity thefts, from robberies to homicides and everything in between.

In addition to responding to calls for service, they also proactively enforce traffic laws such as speeding, financial responsibility (insurance) and registration violations. They also serve warrants, locate intoxicated drivers, and help to get guns and drugs off the streets. However, they also spend time as problem solvers, assisting with code enforcement action and citizen complaints. The Patrol Division's mission is to prevent crime and disorder through active enforcement of the laws and problem solving.
