Our highly trained uniformed police patrol officers are generally the first contact a citizen has with the department. The initial contact with a uniformed officer is very important and often leaves the citizen with a lasting impression of our department. It is our intention to make that impression a most positive one. Our primary goal is to provide our citizens with the highest quality law enforcement services in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
Captain John W Rogers Jr. (ext. 240) oversees all of the daily operations of the police department including the Uniformed Patrol Division. Each watch is commanded by a Police Lieutenant (“Shift Commander”), and one or two Sergeants (“Patrol Supervisors”).
The Shift Commander typically holds the rank of Lieutenant and oversees the entire shift while liaising our agency with others. They also ensure that all investigations are supervised accordingly.

The Patrol Supervisor holds the rank of Sergeant and is responsible for the direct field supervision of the uniformed officers on duty. The Sergeant’s primary responsibility is to oversee the activities of his/her assigned officers, to be a resource for training and be the coordinator of police field services.
