Field Operations Bureau 1
The Airport Bureau is responsible for law enforcement at Salt Lake City International Airport. The airport operates as a city within the city and staffs a number of patrol officers, detectives, and other specialty positions as deemed appropriate to safeguard the airport and its customers. Our goal is to keep the airport safe, open and operational.
The Airport Bureau works with virtually all Federal law enforcement agencies, the TSA, and the Airport Operations Division to deter, detect, and prosecute criminal activity with a nexus to safe airport operations on airport owned property.
Pioneer Patrol Division
The Pioneer Patrol Division is one of the three patrol divisions for SLCPD under the Operations Bureau. Within the division we house patrol officers and the field training officer program. Pioneer Patrol Division is located at 1040 West 700 South. Telephone contact can be made by calling (801) 799-3100.
The Patrol Bureau is responsible for handling all calls for service from community members and visitors in Salt Lake City. In addition, Patrol Officers work proactively to prevent crime and form partnerships with the community to improve the quality of life throughout the city. Patrol is a 24/7 operation that typically handles 150,000 calls for service per year. Because Patrol officers are the first-responders to calls-for-service and emergencies, they need to be highly trained in resolving and restoring order in any type of emergency.
Each day brings a myriad of new problems for officers to resolve. Officers are often tasked with responding to tragedies which requires a considerable amount of emotional self-control and restraint. Officers choose to work patrol for the constant challenge of running into the dangerous unknown to help strangers in their time of need. Patrol Officers also are the front line guardians of the community and constantly work to prevent crime.
