  • Partnered Patrols

    Does any LE agency in CNY or Upstate NY do partnered partols (meaning two officers in one vehicle) anymore? I know at one point NYSP had partnered patrols for certain hours during the night, is this still true? Any thoughts about this?

    Yes, the NYSP still partner up after a certain time. In the area that I worked previously, the Sheriff's Office deputies did not partner up. They do partner up in my current patrol area.

    Having someone right there to back you up is invaluable, especially in very rural areas in the middle of the night.

      My deptment uses 2- man cars from 12a-8a on Sun-Thur and from 8p-8a on Fri and Sat. I was really surprised to hear that Utica PD was running 1 man cars around the clock. Utica a pretty tough town. They had a cop killed up there just a few months ago.

        Suffolk County covers certain sectors with two-officer cars, also certain details patrol in pairs.

            Thanks for the info. I'm hopeing to become a trooper in the future (along with everyone else in NYS) and I would like to based somewhere around here or in the ADK's. I feel a lot better now knowing that I would be partnered up at night seeing as the closest unit (at least around here) may be 10-15 mins away.

                I'm from a small city about 45 mins from Syracuse. I've already signed up for the Trooper test. I'm also taking the University Police test and Park Police.
