The Patrol Division is the largest division within the police department. These officers are the first line of contact with the public. Patrol Officers are responsible for answering daily calls for service from the public, whether they are reporting a noise violation or a violent crime. Officers are expected to be proactive in their interaction with the public.
Patrol Officers are required to have an extensive and well-rounded knowledge of traffic, criminal, civil and state laws as wells as city ordinances. The men and women in the Patrol Division become our Detectives, Lieutenants, Commanders and Chiefs.
Officers from the Patrol division are also involved a variety of specialty enforcement units.
