The Operations Department of the Beaumont Police Department includes the Detective Bureau, Animal Care, Patrol/Traffic, and COPPS team. These highly trained individuals provide a vital link between the community and internal department procedures.

Detective Bureau
The Detective Division coordinates the on-scene investigation of major incidents; investigates crimes which require extended periods of time, expertise, or sensitivity; and conducts follow up to all crimes initiated through patrol reports. Their objective is to obtain as much information as possible so that the District Attorney’s Office can decide whether or not to prosecute the case.  

Staff Members
The Bureau consists of sworn officers dedicated to investigations against property and people. These crimes include sexual assaults, robberies, burglaries, thefts, and aggravated assaults. The Detective Bureau also takes the lead in the recovery of stolen property.
Specific Investigations Unit
The Specific Investigations Unit (SIU) is responsible for the coordination and enforcement of street level crimes in narcotics and the mitigation of gang and youth violence in the City of Beaumont, as well as working with the General Investigations Unit to intervene in critical investigative problems.  The unit attempts to reduce gang influenced anti-social behavior by vigorous investigation and deterrence through alternative methods and programs.

Patrol Division
The Patrol Division is the primary respondent to calls for service and the provider of preventative patrol services. The division is responsible for promoting and developing a partnership between the community and its Police Department. Members of the division aim to “exceed expectations” of public safety to the community while servicing and respecting the Constitutional rights and privileges of all.

Field Operation
Patrol officers are the first responders to our community's calls for service, playing a key role in our public service, crime prevention, crime detection, and criminal apprehension.

Animal Care Services
The animal services officers promote and protect public safety and animal care through sheltering, education, and animal law enforcement. Our philosophy is to promote responsible pet ownership, compassion toward animals, and safe human-animal interactions. As the agency responsible for animal-related public safety, our mission is achieved through shared community values, including professionalism, responsibility, compassion, commitment, integrity, accountability, and community partnerships.

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.
