Patrol Section

The Patrol Section serves as the Police Department’s largest section with over 80 sworn personnel. Considered to be the backbone of any police organization, the primary responsibility of the Officers in the Patrol Section is to respond to calls for service (911). Officers also provide a variety of additional services, including pro-active crime intervention through intelligence led policing, emergency and critical incident response, accident investigation, traffic enforcement, preliminary crime scene investigation, nuisance crimes, community problem solving, and partnerships with the community.
