Uniformed Patrol Division
The Lacey Township Police Department Patrol Division is the largest and most visible division in our agency. These are the uniformed officers who patrol our community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The Division is comprised of 4 squads, each consisting of a Sergeant, 5 to 7 patrol officers, and 1 to 2 civilian dispatchers. The Patrol Division is currently divided into 2 Platoons consisting of 2 squads for each Platoon. The Patrol Platoons are currently under the command of Lieutenants Vincent Meehan and Christopher W. Kenny, Ed.S. The Patrol Division is a pro-active unit that monitors our streets vigilantly to keep our community safe. Patrol officers enforce the law, arrest violators, and preserve the peace.
When anyone needs help within the Township, our patrol officers are the first to respond. From basic theft reports and medical emergencies to serious crime-in-progress calls, our officers are on the scene within minutes to handle any situation needing police intervention. Our patrol officers respond to over 30,000 calls per year, including over 3,300 9-1-1 calls. This is in addition to all of our enforcement duties.
Patrol officers are the “front line” of every police department, and our officers are committed to preserving life, ensuring the safety of the public, and preventing crime in Lacey Township. Their high degree of visibility makes them readily available when needed.
