The Patrol Division is the heart and soul of our Department. Patrol officers are the most visible face of the KCKPD. Residents who report crimes in progress, or are involved in traffic crashes that require police response, will likely interact with a patrol officer. dedicated, professional police officers provide round-the-clock police response to the City, working to maintain a safe community. Responding to an average of 950 calls for service daily, the Patrol Division plays a pivotal part in making our community a better and safer place to live, work and visit.
Patrol officer duties include responding to calls for service, both non-emergency and emergency, initial investigations, evidence collection, enforcing laws and crime prevention activities. These highly trained men and women strive to serve every community member they contact with fairness and respect.
The Commander of the Patrol Division is Lt. Col. Kent Anderson. (see right)
