Grove City Division of Police Staff

The Division of Police is part of the Public Safety Department under the direction of the Public Safety Director.

The Division is organized into three operational sub-divisions, Field Services, Support Services and Communications, which report to the Captain of the Division, who reports to the Chief of Police.

Field Services consist of the Patrol Bureau who are the first responders of the agency. Major functions within this area are Patrol Operations, Bike Patrol, Strategic Response Team (SRT), Traffic Crash Investigations and Honor Guard.

Support Services is organized into three operational bureaus. The Investigative Bureau is responsible for Criminal Investigations, Intelligence, and the Property Room. The Community Services Bureau is responsible for D.A.R.E., School Resource Officers, the Citizen’s Police Academy, Recruitment and Selection, the Explorer’s Post and Community Relations.  Professional Standards Bureau is responsible for CALEA accreditation, training and court services.

Communications is the first point of contact for most citizens.  It receives 9-1-1 calls, general calls for service and dispatches police, fire and EMS services, as well as manages our records to include public records request.
