The majority of Police Operations personnel are uniformed officers serving in patrol teams, with each team comprised of several officers and a sergeant. These officers are the most visible face of the Eugene Police Department. Citizens who report crimes in progress or are involved in traffic crashes that require police response will likely interact with a police officer. EPD’s dedicated, professional police officers provide round-the-clock police response to the City, working to maintain a safe community. They respond to police calls for service, conduct preliminary investigations, and work to prevent crime and improve neighborhoods. These highly trained men and women strive to serve every community member they contact with fairness and respect.
Foot and Bike Patrol
In addition to these teams of police officers who respond to calls for service and conduct self-initiated activity in and out of their police cars, some officers are assigned to dedicated foot and bike patrol positions in designated areas of the City.
