The Patrol Division of the Greensburg Police Department is the most recognizable division within the police department. Officers on patrol are in full uniform and are driving marked police vehicles. Currently, it is made up of 17 officers split among an A-Shift and B-Shift. Each shift is led by a Lieutenant and Sergeant who are supported by six patrol officers. The Patrol Division is responsible for covering the City of Greensburg 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. These officers respond to the simplest citizen calls for service to the most dangerous crimes. When not responding to calls officers actively engage in proactive policing practices.
When a new officer hires on to the Greensburg Police Department, he or she will be assigned to the Patrol Division upon successful completion of the department’s Field Training Program and Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. Once assigned to a shift officers of the Patrol Division are encouraged to seek out specialty roles and specialized training in order to better serve the community. Aside from assigned patrol vehicles the Patrol Division also has access to a department UTV. The UTV is fully marked and equipped with emergency lights and sirens. The UTV can be used to get officers quickly into an area where a standard police car cannot go. It also allows officers to be mobile during community events.
