Over the course of a week, an officer may have assisted in lost and recovered property, a woman screaming, disoriented or missing persons, fights in progress, domestic disputes, noise complaints, traffic accidents, suspicious persons, burglar alarms and medical aided cases.
Officers are trained and equipped to provide optimum emergency aid as first responders to all medical emergencies. When patrol officers are not answering calls, they conduct proactive patrols, looking for suspicious activities, hazardous conditions and opportunities to positively interact with our citizens. They must also deal with traffic related issues such as the enforcement of the Vehicle and Traffic Law, issue parking violations, traffic safety education and insight into traffic engineering.
The Patrol Division’s community policing philosophy of partnership and teamwork with our citizens has helped in maintaining a high quality of life in our village.
