There are four patrol squads, which work 12-hour shifts. The 12-hour shift allows officers to have every other weekend off. Each squad is assigned a minimum of one corporal who assists the sergeants in supervisory duties. Every officer in the Patrol Division is assigned a vehicle and it is their responsibility to keep the maintenance up and clean their vehicles. Officers residing within the city can take these vehicles home and use them for personal business while off duty.
