Patrol Division Staff & Responsibilities
Patrol Services is the largest division within the Police Department. It is commanded by Major Ron Holman. Major Holman oversees three (3) lieutenants, ten (10) sergeants, and forty-six (46) patrol officers. The division is divided by time of day into three (3) shifts: First Shift – 0700 – 1500 hours; Second Shift – 1500 – 2300; and Third Shift – 2300 – 700 hours. Its primary responsibility is to provide uniformed law enforcement service to the community.
Uniformed police officers are generally the first contact a citizen has with a law enforcement agency. Initial contacts will frequently leave the citizen with a lasting impression of the department and it is our intent to make that impression a positive one. Our goal is to provide the highest quality law enforcement service in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
Patrol Services also oversees Communications, Corrections, Community Oriented Officers (COP), a D.A.R.E. /School Safety Officer, and Parking Enforcement.
