Police Department

Patrol Division

The goal of the Patrol Division is to deliver quality and consistent community police service with utmost officer safety.

How should the relationship between officers of this department and the community manifest itself? The Patrol Division addresses this question not just through response to calls, but through working with our community to address concerns and crime issues.  They function as a resource to increase citizen safety and as a catalyst for addressing community needs.

The Patrol Division utilizes vehicle as well as bicycle patrols.  The Patrol Division covers 17 square miles which comprises the the City Limits of Elko. We handle on average of 30,000 calls for service per year.

Our average response time to these calls is three minutes from the time the call is dispatched to the officers arrival.

Patrol Division handles all traffic accidents within the City limits as well as routine police matters which include bank escorts, animal calls, crime calls, funeral processions, parades and much more.
