The Patrol Division is the largest unit in the department and is comprised of three separate shifts. Officers of the Patrol Division are responsible for answering all initial calls for service that come in to the Muscatine County Joint Communications Center (MUSCOM). The separate shifts are assigned as follows;

  • Day Shift - 0700 hrs to 1500 hrs (7am to 3pm)
  • Afternoon Shift - 1500 hrs to 0100 hrs (3pm to 1am)
  • Night Shift - 2100 hrs to 0700 hrs (9pm to 7am)

Day shift officers work five 8-hour days while the afternoon and night shift officers work four 10-hour days. Because of this, afternoon and night shift officers work four days on duty and then have three days of off. As an example Officer John Doe may work Wednesday through Saturday and be off-duty Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. All shift assignments and day off combinations are bid by seniority every six months.

This particular schedule allows a four hour overlap between the afternoon and night shift which allows the shift supervisor to assigned “special details” to officers on a rotational basis. “Special Details” are short term duty assignments that tend to target particular problems issues within the city. For example a shift supervisor may assign the Bike Patrol or officers in plains clothes and an unmarked vehicle to the area of a rash of car burglaries. In addition most officers in the Patrol Division are also assigned to other details. Some other special assignments members of the department could be involved in are listed below;
