Criminal Patrol

Criminal Patrol Division

The Criminal Patrol Division is responsible for maintaining police officers in constant operational readiness for immediate response to any call for service requiring police presence. Patrol officers provide 24/7 coverage throughout the City of Covington, are generally the first response to any police call for service, and are prepared to respond to any emergency.

Nearly half of the Department's personnel are assigned to the Patrol Division, which is composed of uniformed officers and other units assisting officers during their tour of duty, including the Traffic Enforcement Unit and Crime Prevention Unit.
