The Patrol Bureau also includes the Community Service Officers, Traffic Unit, Beach Unit, Marine Unit, Neighborhood Enhancement Team and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). This section has the primary responsibility for the department's effort to preserve peace, protect life and property, and the prevention and suppression of crime.
The Patrol Bureau is responsible for providing immediate response and preventive patrol for more than 25 square miles and 160 miles of roadways. The section is comprised of four squads. Officers are responsible for patrolling the three districts within the Town. Find out what district you live in.
Police officers assigned to this section provide service primarily via marked patrol vehicles, bicycles, all-terrain vehicles (ATV's), unmarked cars, and foot patrols, to provide state of the art service and protection to the citizens of and visitors to Jupiter. The Patrol Bureau strives to provide far more than the traditional response to complaints, committing themselves to the philosophy of Community Policing, preventing crime before it occurs, and teaching citizens and businesses how to reduce their chances of becoming victimized.
