The Uniform Division of the Cordele Police Department are the men and women of the department who respond to the calls for service. The Uniform Division is generally considered the backbone of a police agency, because it is made up the largest group of officers, and their effectiveness is measured every day by the variety of calls they must be prepared to answer and the effectiveness with which they handle each call.
This division is comprised of four (4) Squads. These dedicated men and women make up the largest division within the department and primarily respond to calls for service such as traffic crashes, reports of criminal activity, conduct traffic enforcement and control, participate in community oriented policing events, and coordinate efforts with other divisions within the department as well as surrounding law enforcement agencies.
The Uniform Patrol Division is the most visible aspect of the police department and the patrol officer is responsible for both a reactive and proactive role when performing their daily duties.
