The Police Services Division’s primary purpose, as reflected in its mission statement, is “to protect and serve, with integrity and professionalism, in partnership with the people of Longmont.” Thus, division personnel concentrate on protecting life and property by keeping the peace, enforcing violations of laws, investigating crime, and arresting those responsible for breaking the law. The Police Services Division is composed of three major operational sections including; Patrol Operations, Special Operations, and Detective Operations.
The Patrol Operations Section is primarily responsible for responding to emergency, immediate, and routine service calls and crime related incidents. The responsibilities of Patrol Operations are to ensure the safety and protection of persons and property through proactive and directed patrol, and to provide the highest level of quality service through problem solving and community oriented policing. This area includes the Animal Control Unit, and the Report Takers.
The Special Operations Section has five primary service units; Gang and Crimes Suppression Unit, School Resource Officers, Traffic Unit, and the collateral service functions of the SWAT Team and Bomb Squad.
The Detective Operations Section is responsible for the continued investigation of felony criminal cases and some more complex misdemeanor cases. Cases are either referred to the section from Patrol Officers, other outside law enforcement sources, or are initiated by Detectives assigned in this section. Detective Operations is divided into three distinct units; Person Crimes Unit, Property Crimes Unit, and Special Enforcement Unit.
