Patrol and Investigations
Uniformed patrol officers respond to calls for service and requests for citizen assistance. Approximately one-half of a patrol officer's time is spent working on non-criminal cases, e.g. lost children, medical emergencies, traffic accidents, etc. Patrol officers are also responsible for the enforcement of traffic law, some code enforcement, and crime prevention presentations.
Detectives conduct follow-up investigations of deaths, assaults, child abuse, sexual assaults, robberies, burglaries, serious thefts, frauds, credit card and check crimes, arson, fugitives, serious vandalism, and drug offenses.

Louisville has one K-8 parochial school, three elementary schools, one middle school, one K-8, and one high school. One School Resource Officer is assigned full-time to work with the City's youth and schools. Our philosophy is that we work closely with the schools as police officers, not as counselors or security guards. We do a number of different public safety and instructional programs.
This division enforces the municipal code. It includes dealing with parking, junked vehicles, uncontrolled weeds, and stray dogs. Code officers work with residents and the business community to achieve compliance with City ordinances. Because voluntary compliance is always preferable to punitive enforcement, the department implemented its Courtesy Notice program in 1994. The results are impressive: more code violations than ever are being detected and cited, while the proportion of voluntary compliance is higher. To report a code issue, please contact the main office at 303.666.8634.
