The patrol function is the backbone of every traditional police organization, and there is no difference with ours. Our Patrol Section officers answer thousands of calls for service yearly, operating continuously 24 hours a day; seven days a week. A typical call for service can range from a lost/found pet to a violent felony.

The GCSPD Patrol Section is supervised by 4 Patrol Sergeants, and falls under the command of the Operations Division Lieutenant.
