The Patrol Division is headed by Lieutenant Scott Rieger and consists of five platoons of seven officers each. The platoons have the primary responsibility for the patrol functions of the police department. When fully staffed, each platoon has seven officers assigned to them, with a sergeant in charge of the platoon and a master corporal as an assistant shift supervisor. Patrol officers work a modified 10 hour shift, meaning they work mostly 10 hours shifts with occasional 8 hour shifts. They work a five week schedule and rotate between day, evening, and night shifts.
