The Precinct 8 District Patrol Division consists of twenty-one Deputies and five Sergeants who provide patrol coverage 24 hours a day 365 days a year. Our Deputies perform various duties on a daily basis with emphasis on traffic enforcement, DWI intervention, narcotics interdiction and intense patrols in areas of the precinct that are identified as "hot spots" or high crime areas. Our Deputies are first response officers in unincorporated areas of our precinct and assist several municipalities (cities) on a daily basis. There are eleven municipalities within Precinct 8 and our agency prides itself on having a good working relationship with each of them.
Each Precinct 8 patrol Deputy is assigned a state of the art patrol car and equipment. Our fleet includes Ford Police Interceptors, Chevrolet Police Package Tahoes, Chevrolet Caprice PPVs and Dodge Chargers which are outfitted with mobile computers (MDT's), digital in-car camera and audio recording equipment, GPS and radar units. These tools aid the Deputies in their day-to-day duties and enable them to utilize the latest in police technology to perform their jobs more effectively and efficiently.
Our agency is community oriented and we place a very high priority on providing high profile patrol in the residential neighborhoods of our precinct. It is the goal of our department to provide a safe environment for those who live, work or commute within our precinct.
