Patrol Officers are assigned to each platoon. Three Street Sergeants and one Desk Sergeant supervise these officers. Several Patrol Officers on each platoon are designated as Field Training Officers with the responsibility of providing essential practical experience and training to newly hired officers. The Police Bureau currently has two K9 handlers and two police dogs. Officers are permanently assigned to Neighborhood Policing or contracted service areas.
In addition to the four platoons, the Patrol division includes Patrol Services, Crime Prevention, and Selective Enforcement. The Bicycle Rapid Response Unit is also included in the Patrol Division.
The Patrol Division is led by Captain Sonja Stebbins.
