The patrol division, which falls under the Office of the Deputy Chief of Operations Bureau, is the largest section of the Greece Police Deparment. This section contains 3 Lieutenants, 9 Sergeants, and approximately 60 road patrol officers all divided between 2 precincts and 3 platoons. The 44 square miles which make up the town are subdivided into 7 patrol sectors.
In addition to basic road patrol functions, most officers are involved in specialized units such as evidence technician, rifle team, traffic enforcement, school resource officer, DWI enforcement, motorcycle unit, bicycle unit, ATV unit, and snowmobile unit.
The first platoon runs from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and is supervised by Lieutenant Kyle Smith who works along with 3 Sergeants and 14 patrol officers that help keep the town safe while its residents sleep.
The second platoon starts at 6 a.m. and continues until 2 p.m. and is supervised by Lieutenant Timothy Roth. Much like the first platoon, 3 Sergeants and 15 patrol officers help not only to keep the residents protected, but the thousands of people who commute to Greece for employment. In addition there is a dedicated traffic enforcement officer.
The third platoon begins at 2 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m. and is supervised by Acting Lieutenant Joshua Spearman. He is working along with 3 Sergeants and 19 patrol officers to make up the busiest shift in the department. In addition there is a police officer assigned to the Greece Ridge Center Mall.
