Under the direction of a Commander, the Operations Division is responsible for patrol and investigative law enforcement operations.

The patrol unit is the largest team within the department and provides emergency services to citizens in Lake Stevens incorporated boundaries, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. 

Our bike patrol program, created in 2016, has proven invaluable in the department's approach to community policing and crime detection. Currently the program consists of a Sergeant and two officers.
Our investigations unit reviews and/or investigates are felony and serious misdemeanor crimes committed within the City and aggressively works with the Patrol Unit to apprehend and assist with the successful prosecution of offenders. The investigations and Patrol Units work closely together in achieving investigative and enforcement objectives.
