One Lieutenant, four Sergeants and sixteen Officers comprise the patrol force, and together, they provide patrol coverage 24-hours per day, 7 days per week, and 365 days per year for the City of Gulfport.
Our philosophy is community policing meaning that each officer has a vested interest in working to solve problems and develop police and community partnerships. For this reason, Officers engage in many various activities, such as frequent foot patrols where they can spend time discussing issues with residents and businesses.
Patrol officers work twelve hour shifts, so there is always one squad on duty. Detectives and command staff members often supplement the patrol squads as well. The squad assignments are listed below. Click on any name to send an e-mail. Click here for a zone map.
