Patrol Task Force (PTF): The Patrol Task Force was formed to address crime trends and problem areas within the City, with the ultimate goal of restorative policing and street outreach with our unhoused populations. PTF works closely with Crime Analysis to identify crime trends and relies on Patrol Officers to help identify problem areas. Learn more about PTF's collaboration with the City's Safe and Clean team here.
Traffic Unit: Our Traffic Unit and Motor Officers provide proactive enforcement of vehicle code laws using radar, motorcycle patrol, parking enforcement, and community education programs, much of which is paid for by an annual grant with the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS). The Unit also provides professional traffic collision investigations and reconstruction. Team members routinely make recommendations for traffic control improvements.
