The Southeast Patrol Division is located at 2451 South College Rd. It is divided into two geographic policing based districts. The two districts offer a variety of retail, business, residential, and commercial properties which creates unique challenges for our agency. The Southeast Division is also home to the agency's Special Operations Division. Southeast Patrol is staffed by one Captain, an Administrative Support Technician, two Lieutenants, four Sergeants, and approximately 40 Corporals and officers. Each Lieutenant is assigned to one area or district of responsibility. Their duties include, but not limited to, tracking crime trends and assigning personnel accordingly, acting as liaison between the community and the department and management of officer personnel. The officers are assigned to four, 12-hour shifts which cover the 24-hour period. Under the Geographic Based Policing Model, officers are assigned to specific areas in their district for routine patrol, answering calls for service, acting as community coordinators for proactive police response, and conducting preliminary investigations.
