The men and women of patrol perform the most visible functions of the Madisonville Police Department and are the “backbone” of the agency. These individuals are the first line and respond to citizen needs on a daily basis. Patrol officers work 12 Hour shifts and follow a 3-month rotation, switching between days and nights. These men and women provide their services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to insure that citizens can live and work here safely. The patrol function includes responding to requests for emergency and non-emergency police services, offender apprehension, crime deterrence, initial investigation, evidence gathering and preservation of order within our community. These officers are also tasked with responding to vehicle collisions, traffic control when needed, and the enforcement of traffic violations, which encourage compliance with existing traffic laws and ordinances. The Madisonville Police Department utilizes the community oriented policing philosophy. We gain knowledge from our neighborhood watch groups, community meetings, volunteer opportunities, and social media to interact with our crime mapping to develop directed patrols. This assists the Madisonville Police Department in our ability to reduce crime and lower collisions in an effort to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Madisonville.
