Patrol Division

Patrol officers are responsible for policing Beaumont 24/7, 365 days per year. Patrol officers respond to calls for service, including emergency calls, and are also responsible for initiating contacts with citizens, enforcing criminal laws and traffic violations, training new officers, and attending various community events. In most circumstances, patrol officers handle the initial investigation into crimes and other incidents and conduct follow up investigation as necessary. Each patrol team is supervised by a patrol Watch Commander.

Community-oriented policing and problem solving, or COPPS, is a policing philosophy that promotes and supports organizational strategies to address the causes and reduce the fear of crime and social disorder through problem-solving tactics and community-police partnerships. Community policing brings police and citizens together to prevent crime and solve neighborhood problems. With community policing, the emphasis is on stopping crime before it happens, not responding to calls for service after the crime occurs. Community policing gives citizens more control over the quality of life in their community.

Motorcycle Patrol
The primary duties of the Motorcycle Unit are traffic complaint enforcement, high congestion traffic control and enforcement, accident reduction enforcement, escorts, and special event traffic control. Additionally, motorcycle officers respond to dispatched patrol calls as backup and, not infrequently, as primary officers at crime scenes. Because of their mobility, motorcycle officers are frequently the first units to respond to bank alarms, in-progress calls and fires. Escorts, parades, and traffic and crowd control associated with special events are areas that motorcycle officers handle with great efficiency.
