There are approximately 80 officers working patrol in Delta. They are the front line, the first responders to the public’s calls for service. It is the uniformed patrol officers that provide the visible policing presence on Delta streets, focusing resources to address the problems that present the greatest risk to the community.
The uniformed patrol officers are the largest section of officers in the Department, and are divided based on our area ownership model. District One – Tsawwassen, District Two – Ladner, District Three and Four – North Delta. These four districts are then further broken down into zones and patrol officers are assigned to a specific zone. All Patrol officers respond to calls wherever they occur, however, the zone officer connects with the community and addresses concerns that may be present in their assigned zone. These officers work a four days on four days off, twelve hour shift rotation.
