The Support Division is comprised of five distinct units: Animal Control, Communications, Jail, Records, and Training. Each of these units provides an integral role in providing our citizens with high quality police services. Our Animal Control Unit handles all types of calls related to animals within the city limits. With the opening of our new state of the art Animal Shelter, we have been able to increase our adoptions of unwanted animals by 34%.
Our Communications Center handles all calls for police service, assigning them to the appropriate officer or unit. Communications personnel handle a variety of calls including requests for police and fire services, and all 911 calls. The Jail houses prisoners that are taken into custody for various offenses, and the Records unit is responsible for maintaining all police reports, and helps facilitate open records requests. The Training unit is responsible for coordinating and overseeing the majority of training, including running the Basic Academy for new police officers.
