The Bureau of Field Operations is led by a captain and five lieutenants who share the leadership responsibilities for completing our operational mission with nine sergeants. The Bureau of Field Operations has the most contact with our community: of the 105 sworn members in the Tracy Police Department, 77 are in this bureau, and most are uniform patrol officers.
The Bureau of Field Operations includes many specialized units that address a wide variety of policing problems, such as the Special Enforcement Team (SET), Traffic Unit, and Community Preservation Unit.
The backbone of the Bureau of Field Operations is the uniformed police officer who is responsible for providing the round-the-clock “first responder” capability of the Police Department. The officers of the Bureau of Field Operations respond to all types of calls, from parking complaints to homicides.
When not answering calls for service, officers are responsible for self-initiated activity in enforcing our laws or preventing crime through their interaction with the public.
