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

Patrol 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 Records Division tracks, organizes, stores and distributes most of the police records generated by the Department, and compiles and distributes statistical reports required by the Department administration and various state and federal agencies.

The Communications Division includes the City Dispatch. Each dispatcher is tested for proficiency through the Utah State Bureau of Criminal Identification. They are further trained and certified as an Emergency Medical Dispatcher.
