Traffic / Patrol


Our Patrol Division provides road patrol services and handles all initial investigations. We have a well trained staff of road patrol officers that perform a variety of duties. Some of the officers work as evidence technicians, accident investigators, defensive tactics instructors, driving instructors, and firearms instructors.
