The Patrol Division is the backbone of the department. The division is compromised of four patrol teams, specialized units and an Administration section. Each of the four patrol teams is directed by a sergeant with the assistance of a working corporal along with eight officers. The Administration Section is compromised of a major, the Division Commander, a captain, the Special Operations Commander, and two lieutenants, serving as Night Watch Commanders.
The Patrol Division is tasked with responding to emergency calls for assistance, detection and prevention of crime, traffic crash investigations, traffic enforcement, business checks, and proactive neighborhood patrols. The Patrol Division helps prevent crime and provides a visible presence to the public, instilling confidence and security within the community. Its officers are the first responders who take charge of situations that require immediate action to resolve or mitigate safety issues or concerns.
In 2011 the Patrol Division continued its problem oriented policing style utilizing varied intelligence lead responses to crime trends within the Leesburg Community. Our community partnerships, flexibility, and use of intelligence data remain vital to the Patrol Division’s relentless crime fighting activities.
