The patrol division is comprised of two Sergeants and 11 Police Officers. They are responsible for responding to all calls for service within the City, 24 hours a day. The patrol division handles the initial response to all types of calls from quality of life concerns such as noise complaints to serious felonies, property crimes and crimes against persons. They patrol on a constant basis and conduct traffic enforcement across the City.
