What is Public Safety

A Public Safety Officer is cross-trained as a State Certified Police Officer, State Certified Firefighter, and State Certified Medical First Responder all wrapped into one person. This value added model provides exceptional service at a cost savings to the community.  It also allows our officers to quickly adapt to changing conditions and provide the appropriate mode of service.

The public safety department staffs both road patrol and personnel assigned to fire-duties inside the station 24/7.  Those on road patrol will carry their firefighting protective equipment in their patrol vehicles and respond directly to the scene.  Personnel assigned to fire-duties in the station will respond in the fire apparatus.
