Patrol Bureau

Patrol Supervisors


Patrol Officers are the backbone of the department.  The Salina Police Department provides around-the-clock police services with officers typically working from 6:30 am—3:00 pm (First Watch), 2:30 pm—11:00 pm (Second Watch), and 10:30pm—7:00am (Third Watch).  You may notice a half-hour overlap on these shifts; this affords officers a meal break and can provide extra time at shift change to allow for vehicle and equipment change-over.  Using the boundaries map (below), you can visualize an officers’ beat assignment.  All six beats are staffed full-time, with extra officers covering the busiest areas during times of peak activity.


Salina Patrol Officers are an eclectic and diverse mixture of dedicated men and women from a wide range of ages and ethnic backgrounds.  A typical day in the life of a patrol officer may include:  Routine patrol, traffic enforcement, responding to alarms, assisting citizens, providing traffic control at accident or fire scenes, preparing detailed reports, making arrests,       attending training, performing security at public meetings, recovering lost property, assisting the animal shelter, conducting business and bar checks, and many, many other tasks.
