Police Department Patrolmen

Patrol Officers

Our Patrol Division consists of 26 officers patrolling the streets of Greenfield 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Each shift is lead by one Lieutenant and one Sergeant who oversee the activities of the subordinate officers on the shift.  Each officer works a schedule of 5 days on duty, 2 days off duty then 5 days on duty, 3 days off duty.

First shift runs from 6am to 2pm.  Second Shift runs from 2pm to 10pm. Finally, third shift runs from 10pm to 6am.  Our Reserve Patrol Officers also put in hours on the road on all three shifts on varying days of the month.

Officers attend in-depth and intense training at the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy for 16 weeks.  After ILEA training, they ride with our Field Training Officers to be evaluated and introduced to practical use of the training and to departmental procedure.  Officers are also required to meet a State of Indiana minimum of 16 hours of training per year in various areas of law enforcement with most officers far exceeding those requirements.  The department also holds classes in criminal law updates, defensive tactics, domestic violence, CPR recertification, and firearms qualifications several times per year to maintain the Officers' expertise.  Money collected from accident reports, gun permits, and court fees from traffic violations is used to pay for officer continuing education.
