Patrol Operations are directed by the Operations Bureau commander.
Patrol Officers are responsible for patrolling their assigned areas for crime prevention and reduction, enforcing traffic laws, and responding to emergencies from the public. The staffing of each patrol shift will vary based on a variety of factors, including the seasonal time of year, weather or intelligence events, directed patrols, and data driven policing. Our Department augments patrols with K-9 Units, Traffic Patrol, motorcycle patrol, and other specialized resources based on need. We look to make the most effective use of our existing resources through programs like the Bicycle Officer program, where patrol vehicles are equipped with Bicycles, which Officers will ride through neighborhoods or other limited access areas at times during their regular shift.
