The Patrol Division consists of residential / business patrol, traffic enforcement, bicycle patrol, accident investigations (including reconstruction specialists), drug interdiction / K-9 Units, S.W.A.T. reserve police officers and supports our Honor Guard.

 A lieutenant commands the division and patrol sergeants supervise each patrol shift. Patrol officers work 12 hour shifts, four days on and three days off each week.

 The mission of the Patrol Division is to provide a safe community where citizens can live, work, and raise their families without the fear of crime. This can only be achieved through citizen participation and involvement. Crime as well as community issues that precipitate crime can best be addressed through a cooperative effort involving all those affected. This is best accomplished through an open line of communication. Citizens are encouraged to call 911 to report suspicious activity and criminal behavior.
