The Rochester Police Department operates under a neighborhood-based, five-section patrol model with police officers in neighborhood beats so that they can engage in true community policing activities. This model gives individual officers smaller areas of responsibility, thus enabling them to spend more time engaging citizens.
The five sections are organized into 37 individual patrol beats.
The RPD is working out of three police patrol facilities which are located at:
- 1099 Jay St. (Lake and Genesee sections)
- 630 N. Clinton Ave. (Clinton and Goodman Sections)
- Sibley Building at 30 N. Clinton Ave (Central Section)
The Rochester Police Department Patrol Division consists of five patrol sections:
