Road Patrol

The Monroe Police Department Road Patrol is divided into four squads. Two squads for the day shift and two squads for the night shift. Our Road Patrol Officers work 12 hour shifts and are also responsible for PSO duties, when called upon. Each squad is supervised by a Shift Sergeant. Overall, both Day Shifts and Night Shifts have oversight by the Patrol Lieutenant.  Total oversight is the responsibility of the Patrol Commander.

Public Safety Officer (PSO) is the title used to describe our Officers, who undergo NFPA Certified Fire Academy Training, and in addition to police duties, they are cross-trained as Fire Fighters. This is a requirement for all Officers who are employed with the Monroe Police Department. Public Safety Officers, respond to assist the Monroe Fire Department with fire suppression duties and adhere to a continuous training regiment set forth by the Monroe Fire Department. In addition to being a PSO, our Officers also undergo Medical First Responder (MFR) training and adhere to the required licensing requirements and continued training.

Each Officer is responsible for responding to both emergency and non-emergency complaints, through the Monroe County Central Dispatch. Officers assigned to Road Patrol are responsible for PSO duties, rescue calls, traffic enforcement, investigation of criminal complaints, responding to unusual events or suspicious incidents, and community relations.
