The patrol division provides the fundamental base for all law enforcement services. Gustine P.D. provides a public safety presence 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are four watches, each supervised by a Sergeant or Corporal. Officer’s patrol assignments are not beat-specific. This enhances area familiarity and problem-solving efforts throughout the community.
In addition to traditional security-oriented patrol, officers are also responsible for responding to calls for service, and follow-up investigations for a population of approximately 6,000 citizens.
