Considered by many to be the backbone of the organization, the Patrol Division is the largest and most visible unit of the Sweet Home Police Department. Patrol Officers are on duty twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, and are usually the first to arrive at the scenes of accidents, crimes, or disasters.
The Patrol Division is led by two patrol sergeants under the supervision of the Chief of Police. There are 11 Patrol Officers including two Traffic Officers and one School Resource Officer.
Patrol Officers respond to calls from the public and are usually the first units to arrive at an emergency. They provide uniformed law enforcement services for criminal and non-criminal activities. These officers provide initial investigation services on nearly all criminal activity. Patrol Officers conduct investigations, enforce traffic laws and city ordinances, provide citizen assistance, and patrol our community to prevent criminal activities and neighborhood problems.
Traffic Officers are responsible for traffic law enforcement, traffic accident investigations and responding to traffic complaints. The primary goal of traffic enforcement is to make our roadways safer by changing driving behavior.
Traffic Officers specialize in accident investigations, DUI enforcement, drug-impaired recognition and occupant protection.
Traffic matters have been identified as a top community concern. If you have a complaint concerning a traffic-related problem in your neighborhood, please contact the Sweet Home Police Department.
