  dentify and explain thethree main operational units existing within large police departments andthe primary function(s) of eachtype of unit.

(1) Patrol, “Patrol officers patrol the streets, answer calls for service, make arrests, and deal with public problems (domestic disputes/surveillance) and crimes. As a result of patrolling, they also prevent crime” (Peak et al, 2010, pg.316)

 (2) Criminal investigation, “Detectives are involved in the investigation of crimes (breaking into homes/businesses/vehicles). They solve cases, arrest perpetrators, and recover stolen property” (Peak et al, 2010, pg. 316).

. (3) Traffic enforcement, traffic enforcement is responsible for ensuring that citizens abide by traffic laws (speeding, running traffic lights and stop signs), and they also investigate traffic crashes. (Peak et al, 2010, pg. 316).

How does a supervisor or manager manage each of the three main types of units in a large police department, and what is the manager’s primary function/responsibility in each?

Peak et al (2010) point out that “One of the primary responsibilities of a supervisor is to back officers on calls, especially priority one calls. In doing so, the supervisor performs several functions. First, safety is enhanced, especially if a situation gets out of hand” (pg. 319). The Sergeant is there for the officer’s benefit (good/bad), steering the officer away from turmoil, making sure no rules are or have be broken. The sergeant is an extension of the handbook, the verbal version. The supervisor does just that, Supervise, making sure the officer is doing their job at the scene.
