Field Operations Division

    The Field Operations Division is commanded by a Lieutenant and supervised by four Sergeants.  The majority of the sworn officers in the Department are assigned to this Division.  Assignments within the Division include patrol officer, K-9 handler, Motor Officer, Field Training Officer, and Special Problem Oriented Teams.


    At the core of the Field Operations Division is the Patrol Unit which is the largest and most visible component.  It provides 24 hour police services to our community.  Officers within the division generally work in uniform and drive “marked” (black and white) police cars.


    The purpose of the Patrol Unit is to provide “first response” to requests for police services and to reduce crime, the fear of crime, circumstances that foster criminal activity and other conditions that adversely impact public safety.   It is the responsibility of the patrol officer to respond to all calls for service no matter the severity or nature. Once an officer has arrived, he or she will determine the appropriate course of action. 

    The members of the Selma Police Department, are committed to being responsive to our community in the delivery of quality services. We recognize our responsibility to maintain order, while affording dignity and respect to every individual.  Our objective is to improve the quality of life through community partnership which promotes safe, secure neighborhoods throughout the City of Selma.

    The department follows the philosophy of Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving. This creates a team approach to solving community problems.
