PATROL

The Patrol Division of the Berkeley Heights Police Department is the largest of all the divisions within the Department. The Patrol Division is responsible for responding to all calls for service within the community.
Patrol responds to all 911 calls as well as all non-emergent police department calls.

The Division is comprised of four squads of three officers each lead by a Sergeant driving a patrol vehicle.

Each marked patrol vehicle is equipped with a mobile data terminal computer system. Each system utilizes Info-Cop technology in conjunction with the Enforsys report writing and dispatch programs. Officers carry an automatic external defibrillator (AED) with them on patrol and are trained in the use of this advanced life saving technology, as well as, being trained in CPR and basic first aid.

The Patrol Division is responsible for responding to all 911 calls, motor vehicle crashes, first aid calls, man-made and natural disasters, fires, reports of crimes and disorderly persons offenses, as well as incorporating a spirit of cooperation with both the business community and citizens alike.
Officers receive special training in community policing philosophy, interview and interrogation, and drug awareness. Officers bi-annually get trained in the use of firearms, domestic violence, pursuit policy, and use of force policy.

Patrol Officers are responsible for initial investigation of all crimes that occur within the Township of Berkeley Heights. Investigations that are too intensive or complex are turned over to the Investigation Bureau and will be continued by a Detective.

Division Commander - Lieutenant Ernest Schmidt
