Our organization is comprised of 35 Sworn Officers. The personnel assigned to the Patrol Division have various levels of experience and training. Many have rotated through specialty assignments such as Detective, Community Response Team, Traffic Team and K9. Officer experience varies from 2 years to 24 years. We have 16 officers in the Patrol Division who have come from other law enforcement agencies and 6 Patrol Officers are United States military veterans.


Our members strive to fulfill the ever-changing policing mission.  Our current policing mission components include:


  • Law Enforcement:


o    Patrol

o    Response to calls for service

o    Investigations

o    Tactical Services

o    Support functions


  • Peacekeeping:

o    Community Policing Initiatives (ILP, GREAT, PTO, District Meetings, Etc)

o    Community Caretaking

o    Problem Solving

o    Partnerships & Networking

o    Crime prevention


To fulfill these tasks, the City is divided into three Police Districts with one patrol officer assigned to each district to best serve our community and neighborhood needs. They are responsible for knowing the trends and issues occurring in their assigned District. Each Patrol Sergeant is also assigned to one of the three Districts. Along with the assigned Patrol officers, routine District Meetings are also held and facilitated by the Sergeant.
