The goal of the Patrol Bureau is to address community problems and assure a safe community environment through random, directed and routine patrols. As the most visible and largest bureau of the police bureau, the Patrol Bureau provides the first response to emergency and non-emergency incidents. Patrol personnel proactively address community problems, use various specialized units with special training, and deliver police services to city residents.
A total of 18 officers make up the patrol bureau which is lead by Lieutenant Humberto Fuentes and five Sergeants.
Patrol Officers are scheduled to provide 24 hour coverage. Many extra duty assignments in the Patrol Bureau include a Motor Unit, Special Response Team (SRT), Field Training Officer, and Crime Scene Investigator. As with any bureau, the Patrol Bureau is the backbone of the agency, with most of the bureau's resources being put into this bureau.
