Patrol Division

Patrol Operations are the backbone of the Delano Police Department. Our hard working police officers respond on a daily basis to calls for service from the public and handle varying situations that require quick thinking, professionalism and problem solving skills. The Patrol Division is staffed 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The staff within the Patrol Division includes four patrol shifts that are made up of 5-7 officers and are supervised by a Sergeant and a Corporal. The Patrol Division also encompasses the Departments Special Enforcement Detail (SED), which primarily focuses on gang crimes. However, they do focus on other area of special concern. Lastly, the Patrol Division is made up of two Community Service Officers and two Police Service Technicians.

I am extremely proud of each of our patrol officers and supervisors within the Patrol Division. They work tirelessly to provide a safe community and they strive to enhance the quality of life for everyone. I would enjoy hearing from those who have comments regarding the quality of service they received from the members of the Patrol Division. If there are any questions or concerns regarding the Patrol Division or its operations, please do not hesitate to contact me at (661) 720-2268 or email.

Warm regards,

Commander J. Nicholson
