The Special Operations Unit
The Special Operations Unit was created to work in partnership with the community for the purpose of promoting safe streets and neighborhoods, and improving the overall quality of life.
The Special Operations Unit consists of the Community Policing and Traffic Officers. The unit is supervised by a Sergeant and currently has four officers assigned to Community Policing and six officers assigned to Traffic. The officers assigned to this unit have specialized training and are responsible for addressing and resolving identified issues or problem areas within our community by utilizing proactive, problem solving skills. Members of the unit also participate in many community and town sponsored functions throughout the year.
Community policing officers continuously work on developing and creating partnerships between the community and the Police Department in an effort to improve the quality of life for all within the Town of Davie. The officers utilize bicycles as part of their community policing duties which allows the officers to interact more easily with residents and be more approachable than police officers in patrol cars. Their high visibility and easy accessibility promote greater community involvement and communications between police officers and members of the community.
