Uniformed patrol officers are the most visible members of the Pittsburg Police Department. Officers are proactive in their approach to improve quality of life issues for our citizens.
The Patrol officers are broken up into two squads of 3 officers, with each squad being headed by a Sergeant. They will answer approximately 8,000 calls for service each year while patrolling over 60,000 miles yearly.
These officers are the first line of defense protecting our citizens from the criminal element. Patrol officers receive more than the required minimums of training in an effort to better ensure the safety of our citizens and to better enforce the laws of the State of Texas, as well as local ordinances and federal law.
