The Patrol Division is the backbone of the Department and consists of two, five officer patrol squads.
Each squad is led by a Sergeant and has a K-9 team and three patrol officers. These officers work 12 hours shifts handling calls for service and patrolling the Town seven days a week, 365 days a year. Patrol officers are generally the first point of contact a citizen will have with the public and are also tasked with conducting traffic and criminal enforcement, community policing initiatives and general patrol functions.
A majority of the patrol officers are certified police bicyclists and will conduct patrols on bikes. Please look for them in your neighborhood and say hello.
Our part-time school crossing guard also falls under the patrol division. He can be seen every morning and afternoon, watching out for our children’s safety, at the corner of High and Lockerman Street everyday school is in session.
With nearly 60 years of combined experience patrolling the Town of Denton, our officers are the finest and most knowledgeable in the area.
