The highly trained men and women of the Uniform Patrol Division are responsible for the immediate response to all calls for service, including life threatening incidents and major crimes. The Patrol Division takes a proactive, community-oriented outlook on performing its duty to preserve peace and protect life and property.
Uniform patrol personnel are responsible for a wide variety of tasks that include answering calls for service, proactive street patrol, the prevention and detection of criminal activity, investigating crimes, enforcement of laws, the arrest and prosecution of criminals, community policing, traffic enforcement and medical first responders.
The Uniform Patrol Division is dedicated to improving the quality of life and to serve the citizens, business owners and visitors of Dade City.
The Dade City Police Department has four patrol sergeants. They are responsible for supervising a patrol shift consisting of two or three officers, depending upon staffing levels for each respective shift.
Patrol sergeants conduct read-off at the start of each shift, including information on specific subjects and/or criminal activities to be on the lookout for, training, and administrative notices. They also handle calls for service when patrol officers are unavailable.
All patrol sergeants are certified by the State of Florida as instructors in general topics as well as high liability areas and conduct in-service training classes for the officers assigned to them. They also conduct annual training for the department and other local area departments requesting our assistance.
The Dade City Police Department has full time and part-time police officers assigned to the uniform patrol division. All officers work 12-hour shifts with rotating days off in a four month shift rotation schedule. Part-time officers are used to supplement shift coverage as needed.
The responsibility of the police officer is to answer all calls for service, including investigation of misdemeanor complaints and initial investigation of felony complaints, directing traffic and investigation of traffic crashes, enforcing city ordinances, and the protection of life and property.
Police officers are the most visible representatives of the department and, often times, the city as a whole. Officers present a visible presence and visual deterrence to crime at many city-sponsored events throughout the year.
