The Patrol Division is the heart and soul of the police department. The Patrol Division is currently staffed by the Deputy Chief, four Sergeants, and nine Officers. For more information on becoming a police officer, visit our webpage.
We consider Patrol to be our core competency - the thing we do before all others. The Patrol Officer is the first responder of the police department. They are out in all weather all hours of the day working traffic crashes, lost dogs and initial response to all manner of crimes.
As a department, we are committed to placing at least two police officers on the streets every hour of every day. We are the only department in Clatsop County that has maintained that standard for more than 20 years.
