The Fremont Police Department Patrol Division is responsible for responding to and stabilizing dangerous or violent situations as well as initiating the investigations of criminal cases. These functions are supported by specialized units such as Canine Officers (K-9), Street Crimes Unit, and Mobile Evaluation Team, Traffic safety is also a significant responsibility of the Patrol Division with a traffic lieutenant overseeing a team of officers. The Communications Unit is another major component of the division serving as a public safety answering point for both fixed and wireless 9-1-1 phone service, as well as law enforcement communications in the City. Our patrol personnel are managed by lieutenants serving as Watch Commanders. Patrol officers are assigned to one of three zones of the city, and are supervised by sergeants. The Patrol Division is configured in a team structure and works together to direct enforcement toward offenders causing the most harm to the people we police. A Community Oriented Policing philosophy and Intelligence Led Policing strategies are the foundation to our mission of Public Safety through Professional and Effective Law Enforcement.
