The purpose of the Patrol Division is to provide continuous, effective and efficient 24 hour Police Patrol Service to the community.
At the Trussville Police Department, it is our belief that the importance of Patrol to a community cannot be overstated. Whether it be gauged with the number of Police Patrol personnel, the portion of the City's budget allocated to Patrol operations, or that the uniformed Officer is generally the most visible component of the Department, Patrol is the foundation of police work. The manner in which Patrol Officers carry out their responsibilities affects not only the quality of justice, but also citizen perceptions of law enforcement and the criminal justice system.
The Patrol Division is the largest and most visible part of the department. The Patrol Division, commanded by Lieutenant J. J. Morris, is responsible for first response to calls for service, preliminary investigation, reporting of incidents and offenses, proactive patrol, traffic enforcement, and accident investigation. The Patrol Division Officers respond to all calls for service ranging from emergencies to citizen assists.
The Patrol Division is comprised of four Sergeants, and twenty-four Police Officers. These uniformed officers work four twelve-hour shifts, providing general law enforcement services for the City of Trussville.
The Patrol Division has among its ranks personnel specially trained in various areas including Evidence Technicians, Traffic Homicide Investigators, Field Training Officers, and Special Response Team Personnel.

I would like to thank you for your interest in our department. The City of Trussville has grown rapidly in the 13 years that I have served here, and we have been challenged to keep up with that growth. It is my belief that we have succeeded in meeting that challenge, as our department has a reputation among other area departments as being Professional, well trained, and well equipped. None of this would be possible without the support and appreciation of our community.
I would also like to inform those of you who may not know about the creation of our Traffic Motor Scout Unit within the Patrol Division. We now have 2 Police Motorcycles and Specially Trained Officers to provide directed traffic enforcement to our neighborhoods and sub divisions. This unit was created in response to public outcry to effectively address the problem of flagrant traffic violations in our neighborhoods. If you have a specific area of concern in regard to neighborhood traffic, please contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or at 205-661-4020.
- Lt. J. J. Morris
