Patrol is the backbone of the Davis Police Department. They respond to everything from burglaries in progress to noisy animals, family disturbances to traffic collisions. The Division is lead by Lieutenant Tom Waltz and Lieutenant Glenn Glasgow. During 2011 it was staffed with 6 Sergeants, 5 Corporals, 32 Sworn Officers, 5 Reserve Police Officers, 4 Civilian Police Service Specialists, 1 Crime Analyst, 1 part time Bike Officer, and 2 Community Services Officers. The Patrol Division utilizes five shifts of 3/12 and 4/10 work schedules to maximize beat management policing.
The Patrol Division handled an average of 5,077 calls for service per month as well as officer initiated activities. These include calls related to criminal investigations, traffic collisions and suspicious circumstances, domestic violence cases, driving under the influence of alcohol, alarms at residential and commercial buildings, medical aid calls and calls to assist other allied agencies such as the UC Davis Police Department.
Officer initiated activity is also an important aspect of the Patrol Division function which includes traffic enforcement, parking enforcement, crime suppression and directed patrol of neighborhoods, apartments and business areas. In addition to routine patrol, officers work bicycle and motorcycle patrol around Davis.
Our Police Service Specialists assist Patrol Officers by taking cold crime and incident reports, towing vehicles, crime prevention, evidence collection, traffic control and other administrative details. The division had two Community Services Officers: one responsible fleet maintenance and one assigned to the Crime Analysis Unit.
