Operations Division

The Operations Division of the Police Department plays a crucial role in maintaining law and order within a community. This division encompasses a wide range of law enforcement activities and services. Here are some key components and responsibilities performed by the Operations Division:

  • Patrol: Patrol officers are the backbone of the police department. They are responsible for maintaining a visible presence in the community, responding to emergency calls, conducting routine patrols, and ensuring public safety, 24-hours a day. Patrol is the most visible aspect of the police department. 
  • Traffic Enforcement: This involves enforcing traffic laws and regulations, investigating accidents, and promoting road safety. Officers investigating traffic enforcement use various methods, including issuing citations, conducting DUI checkpoints, and educating the public about safe driving practices.
  • Emergency Response: The Operations Division handles emergency situations, such as responding to 9-1-1 calls for crimes in progress, accidents, medical emergencies, and natural disasters. 
  • Community Policing: Our police department prioritizes a unified approach that combines elements of Problem-Oriented and Community Policing. In this strategy, officers and community members collaborate to identify, address, and find solutions to specific issues such as drug-related crime and neighborhood disputes, and enhance the overall quality of life. Through positive relationships and proactive engagement, we work together to prevent crime and resolve concerns effectively.
  • Crime Prevention: Officers in the Operations Division engage in crime prevention initiatives, which can include public education through social media posts, the neighborhood watch program, and neighborhood meetings.
