Role and Function of Bureau
Uniform Patrol Officers serve the community at the front end of crime by responding to your calls for service. Their presence on your streets, business area, and common community parks and entertainment areas helps to deter crime. We have certain officers who are dedicated to traffic problems.
Criminal Investigators work in plain clothes and work to solve crime in 12 Division. Specialized units in the Criminal Investigation Bureau (C.I.B.) include the Break and Enter Unit, the Auto Theft Unit and Missing Persons.
The primary responsibility of the School Resource Officer (S.R.O.) is to strive to create a safe learning environment at our Secondary Schools. This is achieved by forming positive partnerships with students and school administration. It is encouraged that officers use a proactive style of policing and interact with youth in a non-enforcement manner on a regular basis. In regards to community issues and problems, the highest priority shall be given to those that arise from or impact upon divisional schools.
