3rd Shift Patrol is commanded by Lt. Matthew Shatzer and Sgt Michael Jones.  Midnight patrol - as it is commonly referred to, consisits of eight full-time patrol officers.  Typically four of those officers work the eight hour shift (2330-0730 hrs) each day.

Midnight shift officers spend considerable time responding to fight calls, neighborhood disturbances and calls related to alcohol use/liquor violations.  They also spend time responding to alarm calls and motor vehicle accidents.  When not responding to these types of calls, officers are encouraged to check liquor establishments, check closed businesses, patrol the residential neighborhoods for suspicious activity and curb any disturbances in the neighborhoods.

Please feel free to contact any of the officers below or the command officers should you have a problem.  Lt. Matthew Shatzer reports to the Operations Captain.
