The Patrol Division is the largest and most visible component of the Police Department providing services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to the community.

The Division is staffed by the Deputy Chief of Operations, five Patrol Sergeants and has an authorized strength of 22 patrol officers.

The Deputy Chief, with the aid of the Sergeants, plans, directs, and controls the activities of the Patrol Section.

Services provided by the Patrol Section are based upon the philosophy of Community Oriented Policing, which has been the basis for a continued, positive interaction between the community and its police officers since 1994.

The continued success of this philosophy is based upon the continuing efforts of all the members of the Police Department to work collaboratively with our residents to develop solutions to neighborhood problems.
