Police Officers and Patrol CarUnder the direction of the police commander, the Patrol Division is the largest team within the Police Department. There are four patrol squads consisting of a shift sergeant and several officers who are responsible for providing law enforcement services to the community.

Patrol Officers
The men and women who serve in Patrol are highly trained professionals who work to keep the city safe by providing law enforcement services to the City of Mill Creek 24 hours per day and 365 days per year.

The normal 12-hour work shift for a patrol officer consists of responding to both urgent and routine calls for service reported from Mill Creek businesses, residents, and visitors. View the Patrol Personnel List.

Additional Responsibilities
When not assigned to calls for service, patrol officers make vehicle stops, check suspicious persons, and proactively patrol the city. Many patrol officers have specialized training and serve in additional capacities such as fleet maintenance, collision investigation, and crisis negotiation.

Officers are also trained as instructors with the duty of keeping all officers' skills up to date with firearms, radar / LIDAR, defensive tactics, and emergency vehicle operation education and trainings.
