The men and women of the Uniform Patrol Division are committed to preventing and combating crime by providing quality customer service. All of our officers are highly trained and adept in responding to emergency and other calls for service. They are committed to a mission of preserving the peace and protecting the public.
Uniform Patrol is the backbone of any law enforcement agency. The goal of the uniform division is to address community problems and assure a safe community through directed and routine patrol. Being the largest and most visible police presence in our community it is the Uniform Patrol Division’s job to provide primary law enforcement services to the public 24 hours each and every day of the year. They are the first to respond to calls for service throughout the city.
There are two 12 hour shifts per day. There are currently 60 Patrol Officers and 10 Supervisors assigned to the Uniform Division. The City of Muncie is divided into four districts. The patrol officers routinely conduct preliminary investigations of crimes, enforce criminal and traffic laws, and promote safety and order in Muncie. Officers of the Uniform Patrol Division also handle high liability incidents, including crimes in-progress, violent altercations and medical emergencies. These dedicated officers are all graduates of the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy and have completed field training with an experienced Field Training Officer. We use a variety of specialized units to deliver police services to citizens and visitors of Muncie, including a Traffic Division, K-9 Unit, and Dive Team.Uniform Division Commander
