During last week’s Patrol Division staff meeting, it was agreed that two man units would be deployed once beat coverage has been met.
The following is from an email sent out from Chief Markley:
As discussed in patrol division staff, officers are allowed to ride two man once we have beats covered. If we have beats covered don’t deny the additional requests to ride two man. If we don’t have beats covered don’t put out two man cars. Let’s make sure we are consistent in every precinct. If you have any questions please call or email me. Please ensure this information is passed down to all your supervisors.
Harry S. Markley
Assistant Chief, Patrol Division
We appreciate Chief Yahner’s response to our concerns and we also appreciate Chief Markley’s directive
