Patrol Sections personnel work 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Patrol Day Operations personnel work 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM with the remainder of the day staffed by the two Night Patrol Sections. Patrol Sections personnel (Patrol Officers) respond to calls for service of an emergency and non-emergency nature as well as performing proactive assignments addressing quality of life issues.
These proactive assignments vary with many being the enforcement of traffic laws in addition to patrolling the parks and playgrounds throughout the City. Through the analysis of crime trends and partnerships with the community these officers are deployed to specific locations to maximize their effectiveness. Our goal is to make Cambridge a safe and enjoyable place to live and work.
