A Police Officer performs a wide variety of police functions, including but not limited to:
- Community Engagement
- Crime Prevention
- Crime Suppression
- Protection of Personal Liberties
- Provision of a Wide Variety of Services
- Regulation of Non-Criminal Conduct
Police Officers are given work instructions by superior officers on new assignments but work independently in performing regularly assigned duties.
We have a number of career opportunities within the department. Police officers have the ability to work several different specialized assignments during their career. They also have the opportunity to move within the department while learning new skills on the job.
A few specialty assignments are:
- Bike Patrol
- Investigative Division
- Motorcycle Patrol
- Narcotics Task Force
- School Resource Officer
- SWAT Team
