Police Officers serve many different roles within the Mount Vernon Police Department.  Careers begin in the Patrol Division, which is often referred to as the “backbone of the organization”.   They are the first to respond to help calls and are the most visible representation of the Department.  The variety of work experience develops professional skills and traits that are transferrable to future specialized assignments.  In addition to providing 24/7 city-wide coverage, Patrol Officers are assigned to Neighborhood Zones where they are responsible for working with residents and business owners to tailor policing strategies to solve crime, fear of crime and neighborhood decay unique to that area.
