The Uniform Services division consists of one Division Commander, four Sergeants, and twenty officers. This total includes four officers that are assigned under contract to the Town of Hypoluxo. The Uniform Division personnel patrol the Town of Lantana and its contract areas on a twenty-four hour basis. This is done by various means; presenting a high profile, mobile uniform presence capable of a very rapid response to problems within our Town. Officers and supervisors are encouraged to make positive contacts with the citizens they serve through such programs as Park, Walk, and Talk and bicycle patrols. Officers are also encouraged to take an active part in controlling crime in the community they serve by initiating actions to suppress criminal activity, not merely responding to calls for service. This includes participating in the town-wide Community Neighborhood Enhancement Program and the assignment of a School Resource Officer at Lantana Middle School, paid for by a federal grant. The end result is the efficient performance of the Police Department's mission.
