The Patrol Division is a diverse and varied portion of the Police Department. Its Officers are always ready and able to handle a wide range of situations as well as serve the citizens of the Millville community on a daily basis.

The Patrol Division is comprised of uniformed officers using marked and unmarked patrol vehicles to answer emergency and service calls. The Patrol Division is responsible for preventative patrol activities, discovery of public hazards and delinquency causing situations, as well as for all initial calls for police, and assistance with fire and medical calls. The officers are responsible for the preliminary investigation of crimes, traffic enforcement, DWI detection and apprehension and drug interdiction. Officers are required to enforce all applicable laws and arrest those that violate them. They are required to process those arrested, prepare written reports to document their actions and appear in court when required to assist in their prosecution.

Officers often are required to direct and control traffic, conduct accident investigations, perform crime prevention activities as well as community and public relations. Officers also routinely perform business and vacant house checks, provide funeral escorts and cover crossing guard posts when the guard is unavailable. Patrol Officers are also available to provide a wide range of miscellaneous services in order to better serve the community. Officers work 12 hour shifts covering the city 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

When patrol officers are not answering dispatched calls, they are encouraged to conduct proactive patrols, looking for traffic/parking violations, suspicious persons/situations, executing arrest warrants, and checking for any other incidents needing police attention.

        

              

   

 

TIPS ON WHAT TO DO 

IF YOU'RE EVER STOPPED BY POLICE:

 

Moving violations are the most common reasons a vehicle is stopped by police.

 

Registration or Equipment Violations are other reasons a vehicle may be stopped.  It is not uncommon for a driver to be in violation of a law without knowing it.  It is your responsibility, as a driver, to know the laws governing driving privileges.  Remember, driving is a privilege, NOT a right.

 

Criminal Investigation often involves searching for a "get-a-way' or "suspect" vehicle.  Your vehicle may match the description of a suspect's vehicle.

 

Safety Concerns are other reasons an officer may stop your vehicle.  For instance, your trunk may be open, something may be hanging from your vehicle, or you may have left items on your roof.

 

STEPS TO FOLLOW IF YOU ARE STOPPED:

 

1.    ALWAYS MERGE TO THE RIGHT, WHEN AN EMERGENCY APPROACHES YOUR VEHICLE FROM THE REAR, WITH ITS EMERGENCY LIGHTS ON.

 

2.    Stop your vehicle as far out of the lane of traffic as possible and off the roadway if immediately possible.

 

3.    Stay in your vehicle and turn on the interior light.  Good lighting assists in good communications.  Relax and remain in your vehicle.  If you leave your vehicle, you subject yourself and the officer to dangers of traffic.

 

4.    Provide the proper documentation.  When driving a motor vehicle, you MUST have in your possession:

                    - A valid Driver's License

                    - Valid Vehicle Registration

                    - Proof of current Vehicle Insurance

 

If you are stopped and to not have all these items with you, a citation may be issued.

 

As the driver, you are responsible for the conduct of all the occupants of the vehicle.  This includes such things as passengers wearing seat belts, littering, or creating a disturbance.

 

If you do not agree with the citation do not argue at the scene.  All citizens have the right to question their citation before a judge.
