The Patrol Division of the Liberty Police Department is in operation 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Of the City's 40 commissioned police officers, 27 positions are divided among 4 squads, including a corporal and a sergeant who supervise each shift. These officers enforce City, State and Federal laws and respond to a variety of emergency and non-emergency dispatched calls for service.
Officers cover 4 districts totaling 29 square miles and populated by nearly 30,000 residents. Their duties include:
responding to crimes in progress
taking reports on incidents that have already occurred.
When they are not responding to calls for service, officers are proactive in crime prevention by patrolling neighborhoods and assisting citizens. Patrol officers also assist other departments within the City when requested.
