The Patrol Unit is the largest in the Department, comprising of more than 160 personnel.  For patroling purposes, the City is divided into three zones.  Each zone has a day, swing and mid-night shift Patrol team.   The Patrol teams consist of both sworn and professional staff that provide frontline field services.  Each team is supervised by a Police Sergeant and each shift is managed by a Police Lieutenant (Watch Commander). The number of Officers and Community Service Officers assigned to a shift is based upon a number of factors including; current staffing levels, criminal activity, calls for service, and other information, which helps dictate deployment strategies.
