Commonly referred to as “Patrol,” this division provides routine and emergency services to the community 24 hours a day, year round.
In an effort to maximize resources and response times, patrol areas are divided into four sections; Area-1 (South), Area-2 (Middle), Area-3 (North), and Area-4 (Entertainment District). A police Captain is assigned to each area, along with a full compliment of officers and civilian staff.
As the backbone of any police agency, patrol officers are also assigned to a variety of special events, hosted throughout the year. Some of the larger events include: New Year’s Eve, Miami International Boat Show, South Beach Wine and Food Festival, Spring Break, Memorial Day Weekend, 4th of July, Labor Day, Halloween, and Art Basel.
