Patrol

The Patrol unit consists of 6 Sergeants supervising 35 Patrol Officers, 6 Reserve Officers, 5 Community Service Officers, and 1 support staff member. Basic responsibilities includes all calls for service and assistance, constant patrols of the community, and traffic enforcement.

Besides basic duties, Patrol personnel are also responsible for the following special programs:

  • Traffic Unit
  • Crime scene processing for the entire department.
  • K-9 services utilizing the department's canine handler, Officer Don Darby and the Police K-9 German Shepherd named Lucky.
  • Bicycle Patrol

Patrol PictureThe Police Department has divided the Village into 4 areas called "beats." The formation of these "beats" was based upon the balancing of call loads within certain obvious geographical markers. Each beat has a Sergeant to coordinate six officers assigned to assist the residents in their "beat." The beat officers meet bimonthly to discuss the needs and issues concerning their beats, such as methods that can be utilized to reduce crime, identification of problem areas, meeting and talking to the residents, recommendations to physical changes to a neighborhood, (additional lighting, changes in traffic flows, parking changes, etc.).
