The Patrol Division conducts preliminary criminal investigations, investigates motor vehicle accidents, enforces laws and city ordinances, provides continuous patrols, performs a variety of community services, and acts as a first response to all incidents and emergencies.

Sergeants serve as first-line supervisor tasked with counseling; evaluation, training, and guidance of patrol officers. Patrol Officers perform a wide variety of duties to include patrol operations, traffic enforcement, criminal investigations, community policing activities, and community caretaking functions. Officers patrol assigned areas of responsibility where they routinely interact with the public in response to call for service and self-initiated activities.
