    'The patrol division is the foundation of the Rockland Police Department. Nearly all citizen contact with the Police Department starts with and often times is exclusively with the Patrol Division. The patrol officer is the first officer to respond to calls for assistance and is the officer who is visible in the community to render aid and help to make the community safer.

    Patrol Officers take initial complaints, conduct investigations as necessary, and develop a resolution which may include court action. The initial officer may enlist the help of other officers, detectives or officers from other agencies.

    Patrol Officers are also responsible for the safe flow of traffic through the city. They investigate accidents, enforce traffic laws, and direct traffic at accident scenes and special functions. Frequently the only contact one has with a Patrol Officer is the result of some type of traffic related incident.

    It is our mission to promote the highest level of public safety and quality of life, through exceptional police service to town residents, businesses and visitors. Focusing first and foremost on crime prevention, protection of people and property and the preservation of peace and order, through fair equitable enforcement of laws, while carefully safeguarding the dignity of all of those who are touched by the process.
