The Patrol Section serves as the backbone of any law enforcement agency. The officers assigned are typically the first responders and are the front line between the public and the criminal element. The officers serving in the Patrol Section fulfill and carry out many of the department’s community relations programs.

Bicycle Patrol

The department believes in a proactive approach toward policing. One element of this approach is bicycle patrol. The program utilizes three fully equipped bikes in its effort to serve the public. All officers in the Division participate in the bicycle patrol program which offers an advantage of rapid deployment in areas not readily assessable to motor vehicles. Bicycles are used in business districts, parks, community events, and residential areas. Everyone benefits from the program. Residents and visitors enjoy more one to one officer-citizen contact, better cooperation in problem solving, and an improvement in overall fitness for the officer through physical exercise.

Calls for Service

Calls for service is a direct measure of how busy and active an agency is during the year. The department continues to experience a steady increase in the number of calls for service it receives. The department’s many community relations programs are a constant request for service.
