Road Patrol

The core of any department is the Road Patrol Division. This Division provides 24-hour response to calls for service and all members are committed to maintaining a safe and peaceful environment for our residents and many visitors. The Road Patrol Division is currently supervised by Lieutenant Tim Wood.

Responsibilities

Officers assigned to the Road Patrol Division are divided into four shifts working 12-hour rotations. They work around the clock to serve and protect the citizens of our city. Officers are responsible for providing public safety, responding to emergencies, enforcing traffic and criminal law, conducting accident investigations, assisting other local law enforcement agencies when necessary, and promoting our community outreach philosophy.

Training

The department’s annual in-house training provides valuable techniques and maneuvers to keep our officers and the community safe when fighting against those who commit crime. During the training period, officers are also provided time with local State Attorneys to review new and upcoming legislation that effects our community.
