The Operations Division is the larger of the Department's two divisions and includes all of the Department's uniformed police officers. Operations is responsible for providing direct police response to requests for assistance. The patrol, traffic, and community service officers respond to and investigate criminal acts and public safety concerns.
Operations includes teams that have been specially trained and equipped to meet some of the community and the Department's special needs. These teams include Bicycle Patrol, Canine, Mounted Patrol, Explosive Ordinance Disposal (Bomb Squad), SWAT, and Hostage Negotiations Team (HNT).
