According to one reader of Concealed
Handgun Carry, “This book is well written, exact and "tells it like it is." The book's content
is developed by an author who has years of police experience. I truly enjoyed reading the book, which I might mention, was
cover to cover in one afternoon. I highly recommend "Concealed Handgun Carry," by Steven L. Argiriou.”
the Noblesville Police Department
Police Department is organized into three large units: The Patrol Division; The
Investigations Division; and, the Support Division.
Division of the Noblesville Police Department is divided into three shifts that provide 24-hour coverage for the City of Noblesville.
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.
Investigations Division of the Noblesville Police Department is responsible for investigating such crimes as fraud, child
abuse, homicide, internet crimes, robberies, thefts, prescription drug fraud, etc. The
department consists of a captain, three lieutenants, two sergeants, and nine detectives.
All reports are initially taken by the Patrol Division and then referred to the Criminal Investigations Division when
Investigations Division is also responsible for all property and evidence collected by the Noblesville Police Department.
