Patrol is primarily responsible for responding to medical emergencies, immediate and routine service calls, crime-related incidents and quality of life issues. Officers assigned to Patrol conduct preliminary investigations, collect evidence and arrest offenders. Other responsibilities include: facilitating the safe, expeditious movement of vehicle and pedestrian traffic; minimizing property loss: recovering lost or stolen property; ensuring safety and protection of persons and property through proactive and directed patrol; apprehending offenders; rendering aid and advice as necessary; and providing the highest level of quality service through problem solving and community-oriented policing.
