The Patrol Section provides an around-the-clock, community-wide presence to ensure a visible police profile throughout Erie. This presence is intended to increase effectiveness in the areas of crime prevention and quick response to emergency calls.

The duties of the Patrol Section include:

  • Deterring and investigating criminal activities
  • Providing traffic enforcement and accident investigation
  • Providing a multitude of community services
  • The Traffic Unit is an off-shoot of Patrol and will provide coverage typically during daytime hours when more motorists are on the roads.


We are always interested in hearing and addressing your comments. If you have any questions or comments please email the patrol sergeants or call non-emergency dispatch 303-441-4444.
