Patrol Requests

In addition to the regular patrols conducted by Patrol Officers, citizens may request extra or specified patrols for their residence or neighborhood streets. There are multiple reasons for these requests for patrol including suspicious activity, recent crimes occurring, or a resident may request an Officer to check on their home while they are on vacation or away for another reason. Should a resident request an Officer to check their residence periodically during vacations or other leaves of absence, the homeowner should provide a phone number where they can be released, a list of persons and vehicles that are permitted to be at the residence and at least one local person who has a key and/or alarm code in case of emergency. 

There are no guarantees for how much time Officers will be able to spend conducting these extra patrols because calls for service take priority. Should a resident wish to hire an Officer for dedicated security, please see the Off-Duty Security section for details.

Business owners in the City of Palmetto can also request extra or specific patrols for their businesses. Reasons for these business patrol requests could be the recent termination of a disgruntled employee, a business being closed for a short period of time, crime trends relating to the business or in case of a situation where a business's alarm system is down or malfunctioning. 

There are no guarantees for how much time Officers will be able to spend conducting these extra patrols because calls for service take priority. Should a business wish to hire an Officer for dedicated security, please see the Off-Duty Security section for details.
