The Patrol Operations Division is comprised of 64 commissioned officers, providing 24 hour coverage 7 days a week. Officers work a rotating 12 hour shift that includes weekends and holidays.

The City of Renton covers roughly 23.5 square miles with a population just over 102,000. For patrol purposes, the city is divided into a North and South Sector by the Cedar River. There are five patrol districts in each sector. A patrol commander oversees the daily patrol operations for each of the two sectors.

Patrol officers are the first responders to incidents, as they are dispatched by the 9-1-1 center. They are also one of the most visible representatives of the department, as they proactively patrol the district they are assigned. Patrol officers are provided extensive training in many different skill sets and attend mandatory training throughout their careers to be able to handle the myriad of incidents and situations they encounter.

Patrol officers have a dynamic, diverse, and exciting job. Every day is an opportunity to respond to a variety of calls, interact with a diverse group of people, and solve new and ongoing problems. Patrol officers take great pride in getting to know the area they are assigned and the community members they serve within their district. When not responding directly to calls, or providing backup to other officers, patrol officers proactively use their time to connect with the community, enforce the law, and educate the public.
