The Uniformed Patrol Division is the backbone of the Glynn County Police Department. It is the largest division in the department and consists of uniformed officers and supervisors that operate in marked police cars providing Community Policing based response.
The Uniformed Patrol Division maintains social order through deterrent presence, enforcement of laws, timely response for calls for service, preliminary investigation of criminal offenses, apprehension of offenders and enforcement of traffic laws.
The Uniformed Patrol Division maintains a close relationship with all the units of GCPD to include the Airport, K-9, Traffic/HEAT units as well as the other agencies within Glynn County: City of Brunswick Police, College of Coastal Georgia Police, Glynn Schools Police, Glynn County Sheriff and the Georgia Department of Public Safety.
Police officers assigned to a patrol zone are the “first responders” to a call for service in that zone. Officers are typically assigned to the same Baker each work day.
Currently, our officers work 12 hour shifts, with a four day on four day off schedule. The officers rotate from day shift to nigh shift every two months.
THE UNIFORMED PATROL DIVISION IS ALWAYS OPEN!
