Typical of the police service, the patrol division provides twenty-four hour coverage responding to calls for service and patrolling the community to provide a visual deterrent to crime while enforcing traffic laws as well as state laws and township ordinances. Equally as important as the patrol division are the dedicated people who work in the dispatch center answering the many calls for service, including 911 calls, received every day. Not only do they answer the calls for service, they are the lifeline to our police and fire personnel, providing them with the information they need when responding to the thousands of emergency and other calls for service that are handled each year. Our investigative division is responsible for handling hundreds of cases each year. When an incident requires more follow-up than the patrol division can provide it becomes the responsibility of the investigative division.  
Public safety agencies must be able to communicate effectively with each other to protect and serve citizens. The Police Communications department  is the first line position responsible for planning, organizing, directing, and supervising the work of 9-1-1 Dispatch and Police Communication Center.
