About the Division
The Patrol Division remains the largest component of the Hamilton Police Department and is truly the backbone of our organization. It provides the basic police service of preserving the peace and protecting the lives and properties of others. It is our mission that this service is professionally provided to our customers in a courteous, empathetic manner.
The other sections within the Hamilton Police Department consist of varying degrees of specialization that have been created to assist the Patrol Division in providing this police service. The Patrol Division is divided into 3 rotating shifts.
