Field Operations Division

The Field Operations Division is under the leadership of Captain Shane Palsgrove. Two of those officers are assigned to the Traffic Division and one is assigned as the K-9 handler. The Reserve Unit provides us with supplemental part-time sworn Patrol Officers.

The non-sworn component of the division consists of three Multi-Service Officers (MSO), one Animal Services Officer (ASO), and the Police Explorer Program for youth.
Officers in this division work with community members to identify and resolve problems of crime and disorder through:
  • Responding to emergency calls.
  • Traffic enforcement.
  • Conducting preliminary investigations.
  • Follow-up for most incidents.
  • Community-oriented policing projects.
  • Directed patrol.
  • Targeted pro-active enforcement.
  • Bicycle Patrol.
  • Non-emergency calls for service.
