The Patrol Bureau provides basic police services to the community. These are the officers with whom the public is most likely to come in contact. They respond to emergencies, alarms, reports of crimes, calls for service, and provide traffic enforcement. Services provided range from preliminary investigations of major crimes, to complaints of barking dogs. Our officers provide these services 24-hours a day, 7-days-a-week. Officers are responsible for patrolling assigned areas of the city, enforcing laws, monitoring special problems, and maintaining a high level of quality service as expected by the community.
