Police Interceptor
Patrol, the largest division of the GFPD, provides the most visible and direct services to the community 24 hours a day. The word "patrol" is used here in its broadest sense. Patrol is considered to be the primary law enforcement function and embraces much more than the act of patrolling. Patrol is defined as a generalized function where officers engage in a wide variety of activities including:
  • Responding to Emergencies
  • Answering Calls for Service
  • Enforcing Traffic Laws
  • Investigating Accidents
  • Conducting Initial Criminal Investigations
The Police Department maintains a fleet of marked patrol vehicles. Cruisers are equipped with a Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) which is a computer linked to multiple law enforcement databases. The Police Department handles many urgent situations including:
  • Emergencies
  • Bomb Threats and Suspicious Packages
  • Car Accidents
  • Criminal Complaints
  • Domestic Disputes and Violence
  • Hazardous Road Reports (fallen trees, wires, etc.)
  • Missing Person Reports
  • Neighbor Disputes
Other departmental services include:
  • Public Record Requests
  • Lost and Found Items
  • Noise Complaints
  • Parking Complaints
  • Public Lectures and Talks
  • Ride-Along Program
  • Traffic Control for Special Events
  • Residence Checks
  • Car Seat Safety Inspections (Call for Appointment)
  • Other General Assistance
