The Patrol Division is the lifeblood of a police department.   The initial investigation of a call by a trained police officer most times turns up the most important information and evidence that law enforcement needs to solve a case.   At present in our department we have 37 Police Officers that are supervised over the three shifts by 8 Patrol Lieutenants.  The Patrol Division has two Patrol Captains assigned to it for administrative purposes. Overall responsibility for the Patrol Division is under the direction of Assistant Chief of Police Michael Boehringer.

 Patrol Officers are responsible for the initial handling of any call that comes into our dispatch unit.  These calls can be as simple as a disabled automobile or as serious as a felony level crime in progress.  Our officers generally ride one officer per car and at times multiple cars need to be assigned to a specific call.  The responding officer is responsible for working on a case as far as he can within his function as a police officer.  Calls that necessitate an immediate arrest are handled and completed by the patrol officer including all booking of the suspect.   Calls that need more investigative work done are referred by the officer to one of our specialty units such as the Detective Bureau or Accident Investigation Unit.  In these cases the officer will file all his paperwork for the follow up to be done and then may work hand in hand with the follow up officers to complete the case. 

Within our Patrol Division we have a number of specialty areas that Patrol Officers are assigned to.  For more information on these areas check out the links listed on the bottom of this page.   You can also contact any of the supervisors listed above by using the email link that is attached to their name.
