Patrol CarThe Field Operations Division has the most contact with our community. The heart and soul of the Field Operations Division is the uniformed police officer who is responsible for providing the round-the-clock “first responder” capability of the Police Department. Many of these officers work nights, weekends, and holidays, in good weather and in bad. The officers of the Field Operations Division respond to all types of calls, from parking complaints to homicides. When not answering calls for service, officers are responsible for self-initiated activity in either enforcing our laws or preventing crime through their interaction with the public.

The Field Operations Division includes many specialized units that address a wide variety of policing problems such as the  Traffic Unit, Special Response Team, and Reserve Operations Unit.
