About the Boca Raton Police Department

The Boca Raton Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency that deploys 198 sworn police officers and nearly 100 civilian police personnel.  The department is organized into two large divisions: Community Services Division and Field Services Division.   The basic patrol function in Boca Raton is under the leadership of a two captains who each command a district.  In the East District, the captain has six sergeants and 41 police officers working in seven geographic zones.

According to the Boca Raton Police Department, “the Bureau investigates major crimes that occur in the City of Boca Raton.  The Investigative Services Bureau also works closely with other law enforcement agencies including Palm Beach and Broward Sheriff's Offices, U.S. Customs, U.S. Secret Service, F.B.I., and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. We actively participate in the Palm Beach County Auto Theft Task Force and Violent Crimes Task Force. We also participate in various federal task force efforts, such as the Joint Terrorism Task Force. To ensure an efficient and professional approach to investigations, the Investigative Services Bureau is organized into specialized teams.

In addition to patrol and investigative functions, the Field Operations Division has specialized units such as EODS/Bomb and Swat.  According to the Boca Raton Police Department, “The EODS/Bomb Unit is responsible for handling any situation where a possible explosive device is located. They train fellow officers and assist the public in response to bomb threat situations.  The unit conducts bomb threat and post-blast investigations as well as investigations into any other explosive violations occurring with the City of Boca Raton and is utilized extensively for dignitary visits and special events.
