Patrol Division-Much of a patrol officer’s job involves general law enforcement duties on patrol. Patrol officers typically patrol a specific neighborhood or area. While on duty, patrol officers look for violations of the law which include traffic stops. Patrol officers stop citizens suspected of illegal activity and investigate or monitor suspicious people, unusual situations or safety hazards. Patrol officers wear their department issued uniform, and are visible representatives of law enforcement. Part of their responsibility entails promoting community relations while on the job. While on patrol officers respond to emergencies and calls for service. They give first aid or other assistance to accident victims or to others with physical injuries. If accidents happen in their patrol area, they report to the scene as soon as possible to determine the cause or if someone has committed a crime.

Criminal Investigation Division-. The division consists of the Lieutenant, Sergeant and two corporals. Detectives work closely as lead investigators as well as a Crime Scene Investigation Unit. They gather the forensic evidence needed to work on their cases and will continue to work diligently on multiple cases until they are solved or until they can go no further with the evidence and other information they have gathered. They may be called to testify in court using the evidence and information that has been thoroughly and meticulously collected and analyzed by the detective, the state forensics entities, and state crime lab. Our Police detectives also act as victim advocates, doing everything they can to get justice for them while keeping them appraised of the progress of their case.
