The Noblesville Police Department currently divides the city into six different areas or patrol beats. Each shift is required
to have at least one officer in each area in order to enhance our respones time. Each shift is commanded by a Lieutenant and
2 Sergeants. There are also three K9 teams assigned to the Patrol Division which greatly enhances our ability to detect illegal
drugs, locate and apprehend criminals and to detect explosive devices. Additionally, there are also officers who are assigned
to the Patrol Division that specialize in certain areas such as drug recognition experts, accident reconstructionists, D.A.R.E.,
evidence technicians, child safety seat restraint inspectors, and Field Training Officers to name just a few. The Patrol Division
is also supported by two Community Service Officers who assist with stranded motorists, enforcement of animal and parking
ordinances and a number of other functions and are a tremendous asset to the division's success.

abuse, homicide, internet crimes, robberies, thefts, prescription drug fraud, etc. The
