The Patrol Division is commanded by Lieutenant Michael Whitfield. It is comprised of two duty Lieutenants, four Squad Sergeants, two Corporals, and patrol officers each working a specific area in the city.
The Patrol Division's primary function is responding to calls for service in the community. Timely and efficient response to calls for service is our priority. Officers patrol the 14 square miles of the city responding to an average of 30,000 service calls a year. Patrol Officers interact with a city population of 15,000 which increases with the day to day employees and visitors to our city.
The Patrol Officers safeguard life and property, preserve the peace, prevent and detect crime, enforce the law, and protect the rights of all citizens. We are committed to working in partnership with the community to identify and resolve issues that impact public safety and the quality of life of our citizens.
