The Patrol Division is the largest and most visible section of the department and is the first line of defense in protection for the citizens of Carencro. Officers in the division are divided into four shifts and work two days on, two days off, with every other weekend off. Patrol Officers handle a variety of duties, including traffic enforcement, accident investigation and are responsible for handling all dispatched calls for service and for patrolling the city limits of Carencro.

Included in the Patrol Division are two dual-purpose   K-9 units.  These units are utilized for all in progress/high priority calls and consist of one trained K-9 and a certified K-9 handler. The K-9's are required to complete several months of rigorous training before being paired with a handler. The handler then must complete another 4 weeks of training with the dog and certify at national standards before working on the road. Both K-9's utilized by the Carencro Police Department are Belgian Malinois which are trained in narcotics detection and criminal apprehension.

Reserve Division
The Reserve Division is under the command of Officer Mike Gervais. This Division is comprised of men and women who have professional careers outside of law enforcement who want to give back to their community. These officers supplement the full-timers whenever they have the time and or when they are called upon to assist. These officers have the same powers and provide the same protection to the citizens of Carencro as the full-timers. Our reserve officers go through all required training and the only difference from the full-timers is that they volunteer their time.
