To better handle the unique demands of modern-day law enforcement, the patrol services division is enhanced by a few specialized units. They consist of the traffic unit, S.W.A.T. team, canine (K-9) unit, and the vice/narcotics unit.
The patrol division is tasked with responding to emergency calls for assistance, detection and prevention of crime, traffic crash investigations, traffic enforcement, business checks, and proactive neighborhood patrols. The division helps prevent crime and provides a visible presence to the public, instilling confidence and security within the community. Its officers are the first responders who take charge of situations that require immediate action to resolve or mitigate safety issues or concerns.
The patrol division continues its problem oriented policing style utilizing intelligence led responses to crime trends within the community which allows us to be more responsive to community needs. Additionally, our community partnerships, flexibility, and use of intelligence data remain vital to the patrol division’s relentless crime fighting activities.
