Patrol Division

A group of police officers

Patrol officers are responsible for policing Beaumont 24/7, 365 days per year. Patrol officers respond to calls for service, including emergency calls, and are also responsible for:

  • Initiating contacts with citizens
  • Enforcing criminal laws and traffic violations
  • Training new officers
  • Attending various community events

In most circumstances, patrol officers handle the initial investigation into crimes and other incidents and conduct follow up investigation as necessary. Each patrol team is supervised by a patrol Watch Commander.
