The Police Department Patrol Division is the most visible element of the Parker Police Department. Since a considerable portion of the Patrol Division's time is spent in traffic enforcement, the department has four full-time commissioned officers assigned to the Traffic Unit. All patrol officers are responsible for answering calls, addressing domestic and civil disputes, and apprehending criminal offenders, as well as taking on a myriad of other duties. The Patrol Division is staffed 24/7 year-round.
The Communications section handles all emergency and non-emergency calls for both Parker and Lone Tree police departments. This section is critical to the operations of the department. Incidents generally begin and end with dispatchers.
The Parker Police Department is committed to the development and implementation of safety education in the schools throughout the Town of Parker. Through these programs, the department seeks to increase the community's understanding of the impact and effects of safety and security concerns in their schools.
