The Uniformed Services Bureau is comprised of the following Divisions, Sections, and Units.
Patrol Officers are the first elements of intervention in most Law Enforcement activities. They respond to all calls for service and are responsible for original offense reports and field investigations. Patrol Officers are also expected to enforce the laws of the State of Texas and Municipal ordinances.
The Patrol Division is under the command of Lt. Lee Tipton, Lt. James Waller, and Lt. Joe Smart. Patrol shifts are designed to overlap in order to provide a seamless transition at shift change hours. Sergeants are assigned to supervise each of the Patrol Shifts. The Patrol Shifts are comprised of several different variations of 8 and 12 hours (static and rotating) and incorporate several overlapping schedules.

The city is divided into Patrol districts and Officers are routinely assigned to a specific district on a regular and continuing basis. In this way a Patrol Officer becomes familiar with the residents, business owners and surroundings of the assigned district. Permanent district assignments are one of the cornerstones of Community Oriented Policing and the Conroe Police Department subscribes to this innovative concept of public service.
The Patrol Division is also responsible for the Bike Patrol. This assignment is not a fulltime assignment, but relies on extra duty from mostly Patrol Officers. This voluntary unit provides bicycle patrol to our parks, shopping centers and neighborhoods. You will typically find them at special events such as the Parks and Recreation events, Cajun Catfish Festival, KidzFest, etc. They will also be utilized for special assignments such as narcotics or burglary enforcement.
Also assigned to the Patrol Division is the Department's Honor Guard. The Honor Guard's primary responsibility is to represent the Department in all facets of honor and respect to fallen heroes of this and surrounding agencies. The Honor Guard includes duties such as Funeral Details, Color Guard and Rifle Team. Any and all components may be called into service as needed.
Each May, the Honor Guard performs a tribute to all fallen Law Enforcement Officers at Heritage Place during National Police Week. This ceremony of respect is open to the public. The public is encouraged to come and experience this solemn occasion and observe the Honor Guard.
Communications personnel perform many complex duties, including but not limited to dispatching Patrol Officers for calls for service. The Communications Center is a state-of-the-art facility with advanced Computer Aided Dispatch system, or CAD, as well as a self-contained emergency radio system designed to maintain communications in the event of a total radio console failure. Communications Center Personnel are often the contact between the Officers and the community. This requires excellent communications skills, with the added ability of coordinating an Officer's and other emergency services response. Mapping software and Automatic Vehicle Locator technology allow the Communications Officers to quickly locate the closest Patrol resources to any emergency in seconds.
This Unit participates with, and is dedicated to, the education of citizens in traffic safety and enforcement, as well as investigations of community-initiated traffic complaints. The Traffic Officers are not call responsive and their primary responsibilities are the enforcement of traffic laws, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement, and the investigation of fatal crashes.
The Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team is comprised of a volunteer composite of officers from throughout the department. This is not a full-time position and officers selected for this unit perform these duties secondary to their primary work assignment. The Team is comprised of Tactical Operators and Hostage Negotiators who primarily respond to barricaded subjects, hostage situations, high-risk arrest warrants, and high-risk narcotic search warrants.
