Patrol Division

The Patrol Division is the backbone of the Police Department and is supervised by the Lieutenant, Richard W. Frederick.  Each of our four dedicated Patrol Squads consists of a Corporal and two officers.  The patrol officer is typically the first point of contact with the citizens of our community.  A tour of duty may find our officers effectuating an arrest, in control at the scene of a major crime, investigating a traffic accident, assisting at a medical emergency and handling routine calls for service.   Another important function of the Patrol Division is crime prevention.  Their high visibility and presence helps to serve as a deterrent.  Officers can routinely be found actively checking business locations, parks, neighborhoods, parking areas and enforcing traffic laws.
