Patrol Division

The Patrol Division is the largest division within the police department. Officers assigned to patrol are committed to building trust and mutual respect while providing law enforcement services 24 hours a day 365 days a year. The officers assigned to patrol usually wear the identifiable police uniform and drive the black and white marked police units. These officers are assigned to respond to calls for service from citizens that include thefts, missing persons, disputes, traffic accidents, suspicious persons, and are the primary officers responding to 911 calls.  These officers may be assigned to other duties that include foot patrol and the use of other special equipment and vehicles. Officers in patrol can be assigned specialty duties such as traffic officer, or K9 officer, which require more training to complete these assignments.  Together, the patrol division is dedicated to delivering law enforcement services with the highest quality of ideals, standards, and principles reflecting the City of Delano’s long standing commitment for service to our citizens.
