Patrol are the officers seen patrolling Caddo Mills neighborhoods and are the first responders to most calls for police service.  Patrol dedicates its personnel and material resources to maintaining public order and safeguarding the individual and constitutional rights of all persons.

When a citizen or visitor calls the Caddo Mills Police Department for assistance, the responding Officer is assigned to Patrol.  Officers of the Caddo Mills Police Department who are assigned to Patrol handle all of the investigative duties that pertain to calls for service in the City of Caddo Mills.  These Officers meet with the reporting person, interview witnesses and suspects, collect evidence, render first aid, effect arrests and conduct crash investigations.  If a scene or criminal investigation is complex, the Patrol Officer can request assistance from a specialized unit for additional investigative resources; however the case is worked by Patrol. 

Many Patrol Officers have received specialized training in investigative techniques, narcotics detection and investigation, evidence recovery, and crisis intervention training (CIT) which enhances their response to our City.  Patrol Officers receive advanced training in Community Oriented Policing, Use of Force, Police Vehicle Operations and a myriad of other law enforcement topics.  Patrol also encompasses the Police K-9 Unit and the School Resource Officer.  All of Patrol report to the Patrol Sergeant.
