The Patrol Division is the most visible and important function of the Andover Township Police Department. Patrol Division personnel are considered the backbone of the police department and are responsible for the initial handling of all calls for service within the 21.20 square miles of the Township of Andover. These are the officers who patrol our community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. When anyone needs help within the Township, our patrol officers are the first to respond. From medical calls and crimes in progress to domestic disturbances, our officers are on the scene within minutes to handle any situation needing police intervention.

The Patrol Division is comprised of two patrol squads and is currently staffed by 10 sworn Officers. The Patrol Division is an extremely pro-active unit that monitors our streets vigilantly to keep our community safe. Patrol officers enforce the law, arrest violators and preserve the peace.

Uniformed personnel assigned to the Patrol Division perform most preliminary investigations and are the "front line" of every police department. Our officers are committed to preserving life, ensuring the safety of the public, and preventing crime in Andover Township. Their high degree of visibility makes them readily available when needed.
