To keep our city safe, the Police Department has officers assigned to patrol duties throughout the city at all times. In order to ensure that all areas of Spartanburg are covered, the city is divided into four patrol districts.
The workday for Patrol Officers is divided into three shifts. Officers are assigned to each district on every shift. The Uniform Patrol Division is divided into three platoons. Each platoon has two teams. Each team is assigned a Watch Commander with the rank of lieutenant. The Watch Commanders are responsible for oversight of their respective teams and are assisted by a sergeant who works directly with the officers assigned to their teams.
Patrol District One covers Spartanburg's north side, including the Beaumont Village neighborhood, neighborhoods around Cleveland Park, and both Wofford College and Converse College. The District also includes areas of downtown north of Main Street.
Patrol District Two encompasses the city's east side, including the neighborhoods of Converse Heights, Fernwood, and the neighborhoods and businesses in the Hillcrest area.
Patrol District Three covers Spartanburg's south side, including the Hampton Heights, South Converse, and Duncan Park neighborhoods, as well as the areas of downtown south of Main Street.
Patrol District Four contains our city's west side, including the neighborhoods of Woodland Heights and Camelot, as well as major shopping areas such as the Dorman Centre and Westgate Mall.
