Field Operations Division

The Field Operations Division is made up of the Patrol Section and the Criminal Investigations Section.  The Patrol Section is comprised of two platoons, each of which has three patrol teams (Day Shift, Evening Shift, and Midnight Shift).  Officers patrol the Town in assigned Patrol Beats which incorporate Community Policing Districts.

Detectives assigned to the Criminal Investigation Section (CIS) are responsible for conducting in-depth, comprehensive investigations into felonies and serious misdemeanor cases. The Criminal Investigation Section also conducts all unique and undercover investigations conducted by the Leesburg Police Department. 

CIS Detectives also serve as liaisons with allied federal agencies including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Postal Inspectors, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, United States Secret Service and United States Marshal’s Service. CIS Detectives work cooperatively with Officers and Investigators from other departments for many leads that may exist outside the Town of Leesburg.
