Patrol Division

The Patrol Division is the most visible and recognizable unit of the police department, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Patrol officers are first responders who provide proactive police patrols, enforce federal, state, and local laws, traffic laws, and report offenses. In short, Patrol performs initial investigations into offenses and prevents and deters crimes through being pro-active and highly visible.

The Patrol Division is comprised of four shifts, each staffed by one sergeant, one corporal, and five officers. The patrol shifts work in 12-hour rotations with both day and night shift coverage.

Additionally, the city is geographically split into four districts that operate at various times to ensure total city coverage through any 24-hour period.
