Patrol Division

The Patrol Division is the most visible division in the department. Led by Captain Jon Capt Jon WilliamsWilliams, Division Commander, the officers in the Patrol Division respond to calls for service, conduct traffic stops, investigate suspicious activity, investigate traffic crashes and other duties as required.
The Patrol Division is divided into four shifts that provide 24-hour coverage for the City of Noblesville. The Noblesville Police Department currently divides the city into three different patrol districts. Each shift is required to have at least one officer in each area in order to enhance our response time. Each shift is commanded by a lieutenant and two sergeants. There are also three K-9 teams assigned to the Patrol Division which greatly enhances our ability to locate and apprehend criminals and to detect illegal drugs.
Officers assigned to the Patrol Division may specialize in areas such as drug recognition, crash reconstruction, field evidence tech, child safety seat restraint, and field training.
The Patrol Division is also supported by two Community Service Officers who assist with stranded motorists, enforcement of animal and parking ordinances, and a number of other functions and are a tremendous asset to the division's success.
The Patrol Division uses a number of different ways to provide service within the city. The most common is vehicular patrol. The division uses fully-marked, semi-marked and unmarked patrol vehicles in order to meet the different demands of its various duties. The division also emphasizes and encourages officers to utilize foot patrol as an effective means to deter and fight crime.  The Bicycle Patrol unit is also used quite regularly throughout the year for regular patrol duties and for special events. The Noblesville Police Department also responds to incidents on Morse Reservoir using the Boat Patrol Unit as well. During the summer months, regular patrols are assigned to the reservoir.  


Problem Oriented Policing Unit




The Problem Oriented Policing (POP) unit consists of a sergeant, two officers and a K9 team.  The POP unit focuses on problem areas in the city that result in repeated calls to the police department that conventional police responses don't resolve.  The POP unit uses all resources it has available to resolve any crimes in a given address or area. 




Traffic Unit



The Traffic Unit consists of a sergeant and three officers.  The traffic unit responds to traffic complaints called in by residents and enforces traffic laws in high crash areas.  The traffic unit also focuses on school zones and areas where there are a large number of pedestrians.  If you'd like to report a traffic problem, please complete our on-line traffic complaint form.  Your submission will be assigned to a traffic unit officer and, if you choose to leave contact information you will be contacted regarding enforcement action taken.
