The JCCC Police Department patrol division is the largest division within the department.
Its purpose is to provide the highest level of security and public safety assistance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Whether our officers are in their patrol vehicle or on bicycle or foot, they perform a wide variety of services.
These services include, but are not limited to:
- Responding to calls for service
- Writing reports
- Conducting preliminary investigations
- Checking the security of college property
- and Providing traffic enforcement and crowd control during special events
Additionally, members of the division handled 25,257 calls for service during the fiscal year of 2009.
Headed by the chief of police, there are a total of 20 sworn officers and two public safety officers assigned to this division, including three sergeants.
All members of the patrol division are equipped with the latest in law enforcement equipment and – like all department sworn officers -- are required to complete annual mandatory training established through the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center and/or our own departmental directives.
Bias-based profiling, or racial profiling, in traffic contacts and field contacts is strictly prohibited.
Sworn officers shall actively enforce state and federal laws and applicable college policies and procedures in a responsible and professional manner, without regard to race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation or gender.
Officers may take into account the reported race or ethnicity of a specific suspect or suspects based upon trustworthy, locally relevant information that links a person or persons of a specific race/ethnicity to a particular unlawful incident.
Race and/or ethnicity can never be used as the sole basis for probable cause or reasonable suspicion.
