Department Units

The Uniformed Patrol Division is the traditional "backbone" of the police service. It is the Uniformed Patrol Division that first responds to all requests for service and help by the public and it is the Uniformed Patrol Division that initiates criminal investigations.

Included within the Uniformed Patrol Division are a number of units whose members are trained to function in specialized areas of patrol, training and investigations.
