The Patrol Division covers the city limits of Elko handling an average of 30,000 calls for service per year. The goal is to deliver quality and consistent service to the citizens living and visiting our community.

The Patrol Division consists of four teams, covering 24/7 police service. They respond to routine and emergency calls through Elko Central Dispatch and neighborhood patrols. Officers conduct preliminary investigations and document criminal incidents, and motor vehicle crashes, respond to alarms, control traffic, and respond to citizen questions and requests.

Patrol Officers work with the community to address concerns and crime issues. They function as a resource to increase citizen safety and as a catalyst for addressing community needs.
