Patrol Division

The Patrol Division is the primary responding unit to calls from citizens and businesses within the city limits.  They work 24 hours a day in two 12-hour shifts (day shift and night shift) and respond to any request for police assistance.  These officers are the most visible officers within the department and make up most of the uniform personnel.  Patrol officers' essential responsibilities are patrolling neighborhoods and commercial properties, taking reports from citizens, conducting enforcement duties, and making criminal arrests.
