Patrol is active 24 hours a day and is committed to responding to the needs of the public any time summoned. There are two teams of officers assigned to four different 12-hour shifts and they work on a rotational basis. Each shift is supervised by either a Sergeant or a Corporal.
Officers are proactively seeking out unlawful activities. They are assigned to patrol beats so they can establish a connection with the area residents and businesses. The beats also reduce response times to emergency calls and other calls for service. As part of their community-oriented police training, officers look for solutions to law enforcement issues they observe and then formulate and institute solutions on their own or as a group.
