The Patrol Division is responsible for patrolling and protecting a city of 17000 people and an area of 4.3 square miles, 24 hrs per day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year. The backbone of the Police Department is its basic patrol. These are the men and women who patrol the streets 24 hrs per day 365 days a year. They answer calls for service, assist other departments in the city, enforce the traffic laws, maintain order, protect and serve.

As they are the first on the scene of a serious incident, be it a traffic crash or criminal act, how well they do their job will determine how successful we are in solving the crime or determining what violation of law was committed that caused the accident.

The visibility of the patrol division assists the Department in suppressing criminal activity. For this reason, the Lyndhurst Police Department vehicles are the traditional black and white paint pattern. Patrol officers spend a portion of their tour of duty on foot patrol in the business district and schools.

The Patrol Division is comprised of 4 six-officer shifts. They patrol 4.3 square miles and protect 17000 residents. Additionally, the Department offers Bicycle Safety talks, Crime Prevention Information, Child Photo ID Pictures, Fingerprinting of Civilians. An Auxiliary Police unit with an authorized strength of 25 members supports the Basic Patrol. Seven of these Auxiliary Police Officers are also sworn officers.”
