Neighborhood Patrol

Your Neighborhood Patrol

In support of the Department’s philosophy of Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving (COPPS), the City has been split into four geographical areas. Each area is the responsibility of a Patrol Sergeant.
Police officers are assigned to a Sergeant and their “Area of Responsibility.” This provides a “team” concept in our efforts to work with the community and to ensure that problems are properly identified and resolved.
