Field Services and Investigations Division

Officer with plaqueInvestigations
The Cloverdale Police Department is a generalist type of law enforcement agency. Each officer is responsible for their own calls for service. They investigate each case from beginning to end.

When the Department has sufficient staffing, it reinstitutes the Detective position within the Field Services Division. This Detective is assigned to this position for a two- or three-year period. The Detective is responsible for the follow-up investigation of all felony crimes which are beyond the resources of the Patrol Unit. The Detective is also the liaison for the other investigative units in the County.

In addition to investigations, the Detective may also provide service for special projects, long-term problem solving, and act as a liaison to various countywide task forces and committees.

Patrol Unit
The Cloverdale Police Department operates a Patrol Division of three sergeants and ten officers. Our patrol staff works the 4/10 plan, which allows for the best coverage during peak demand times. Patrol Division also hosts the K-9 Unit.

In addition to routine patrol, officers make regular security checks of the City's parks and licensed establishments. Officers working the graveyard shift continue the time-honored tradition of shaking the doorknobs of businesses in the downtown area to provide an additional measure of security to our business owners.

Community policing is a large part of the patrol function. Although it is a department-wide philosophy, the patrol officers are the ones who employ the problem solving process the most.
