Greensboro Police Department

Greensboro Uniform Patrol Commander - Captain Rodricus Monford Sr.

My goals for the Uniform Division is to reduce the occurrence of crime and to detect crimes as they are occurring though the effective deployment of available personnel and the timely response to calls for service.

The primary functional responsibilities of the Uniform Division include:

Responding to Calls for Service

Prior to the ending of each shift, the on-coming shift prepares for "Roll Call". This is the point where the supervisor from the departing shift advises the new shift of incidents that occurred during their watch or anything that needs officers' attention. This is very similar to what you see on the various Television Police Shows.
