The Administrative Section focuses on dissemination of information and includes our School Resource Officer and Community Outreach Officer. This section also includes Records, which is governed by GRAMMA law in order to provide transparency without violating individuals' rights to privacy. Technical Specialists, which fulfill a broad range of duties, are also included in this section.

The Investigations Section does follow-up investigations of initial crime reports, crime scene investigation, intelligence gathering, narcotics enforcement and undercover operations.

The Patrol Section is the largest and most active division. Patrol officers are responsible for answering calls for service, walk-in complaints, accident investigations, and traffic enforcement. Within the Patrol Division, individual patrol officers are assigned to coordinate or participate in special programs which support the Department's Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving efforts. The Victim Advocate is also included in this division
