  • #of officers per car/call

    I'm curious to know which departments around the DFW metroplex use a partner system vs. single officer car. Does it vary by time or beat? Also, how many cars are typically dispatched to the various types of calls? Thanks.

      That's an odd question

          I officer per normal call. Different calls get different numbers. In a city there is a back up officer close. Traffic control, warrant service, or an emergency might get 3 plus cars.

          One officer can handle most calls in my area, but it takes two to move the bodies to the corners vehicle if they dont play nice.

            Most D/FW depts are single car assignments. Dependng on the call multiple officers will be dispatched. Single car increased visiblity and response time to call.

            Dallas uses 2 officers per car in certain parts of the city for purposes of officer safety.

                When I was Arlington PD I was on 4th watch that we rode two man units just during that shift for the special assignments work we did (bar checks, knock&talks, and crack hotels ... stuff like that)
