The Summerville Police Department consists of four patrol teams. The patrol division is the backbone of the police department, playing a vital role in maintaining public safety through proactive patrols, emergency response, community engagement, and crime prevention efforts.
Team 5 comprises four officers responsible for promptly responding to service calls, particularly during peak activity periods. Operating on a distinct shift from other patrol teams ensures seamless coverage between shifts. This strategic scheduling enables Team 5 officers to manage calls effectively, facilitating timely departures for officers concluding their shifts and ensuring a smooth shift briefing for the night shift team.
