The primary functions of the Patrol Division are to provide prompt response to community requests for police assistance and to implement proactive measures that reduce and prevent criminal activity through Community Oriented Policing Programs. Within our COPP program, patrol officers are each assigned a portion of the city that they work with in crime prevention.
The Detective Division serves investigative functions for the department. Members assigned to this Division have been promoted from Patrol, work in plainclothes and conduct follow-up on felony investigations initiated by the Patrol Division as well as certain misdemeanors, as deemed appropriate.
The Narcotics Division currently consists of one officer who works with the Nevada County Narcotics Task Force. The task force investigates narcotics trafficking, manufacturing of controlled substances and cultivation of illegal marijuana.
Appointments are available Tuesday through Friday from 8am-4pm. Please call (530) 477-4600 and ask for the evidence technician to schedule an appointment.
