The Patrol Division is the most highly visible section of the Corcoran Police Department. The Patrol Division consists of uniformed patrol officers that are deployed in marked police vehicles. Patrol officers handle calls for service from the public, as well as proactively enforce state and local laws. Patrol officers work a 12 hour work schedule, which allows the Department to maximize patrol staffing. Each patrol shift is supervised by a sergeant who acts as the Watch Commander. The Watch Commander has the operational control of all personnel assigned during their shift. The Watch Commander is available 24 hours a day and may be reached at (559)992-5151.
