Police officers in the Operations Bureau respond to calls for service each day. They patrol our roads and enforce traffic and parking ordinances. They investigate accidents, provide traffic control, and assist with medical emergency calls. They also resolve criminal complaints and provide other specialized services to our residents.
The Animal Control Officer (ACO) investigates animal complaints and enforces Town ordinances. The ACO impounds strays and reunites lost pets with their owners. The ACO also promotes animal welfare and educates the public about animal safety. The kennel of the ACO is designed to house animals temporarily and does not serve as an animal shelter. For this reason, surrendered animals are not accepted. View lost and adoptable animals.
Calls for Service
Calls for service are assigned to patrol officers according to severity or urgency. Calls are generally initiated by the public, including calls to 911 for emergency assistance. Information is collected at our central dispatching service and relayed by radio to the responding officers.
The Canine (K-9) unit use service dogs to assist in the performance of their responsibilities. Service dogs accompany their handlers on traffic stops or when responding to calls or emergencies. The canine assists in detecting illegal substances and in other public engagements related to law enforcement.
Community Service Aides
The Community Service Aides (CSA) are civilian members of the Lady Lake Police Department trained to perform a variety of duties in support of sworn law enforcement. Responsibilities include preliminary non-violent investigations, automobile accident investigation, minor crime scene processing, and other, non-emergency, law enforcement activities.
Criminal Investigation Division
Detectives in the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) investigate cases when they become too complex or time consuming for the initial responding police officer.
Traffic and Parking Enforcement
A primary duty of our patrol officers is the enforcement of traffic laws to reduce traffic collisions. This encourages the safe and expedient flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic. These efforts result in safer roadways and streets, fewer fatalities and injuries, and reduced property damage.
Reserve Police Officers provide supplemental force for general duty police work. Duties may include patrol, investigations, special events, and special details. Duties are assigned by a supervisor or a member of the Command Staff.
