Patrol shifts generally consist of a watch sergeant, a minimum of two patrol officers and a motorcycle officer. Their goal role is to provide traffic enforcement and focus on motorist safety. They make crime reports, answer calls for service and patrol the community to prevent crime. In addition, they often identify non-crime related problems in the community and help facilitate solutions.
