Field Services Division Five Beat System
The Field Services Division is responsible for those areas which directly influence the quality of life for the residents and businesses in Indio. In addition to enforcing the laws of our society, the Police Department believes it is equally important to maintain and develop positive relationships with all members of the community. The five beat system accomplishes this.
The City of Indio is divided up into five policing beats. Field Services Division is responsible for crime control and public safety issues in their assigned patrol beats.
The Indio Police Department’s Field Service Division is working to provide a safe and secure environment for the community. The utilization of proactive community based policing concepts, problem solving principles, technology, and effective crime fighting strategies are just part of the programs overall plan.
The Field Services Division as well as our other department divisions utilizes the "Compstat" policing strategy. Compstat (short for Computer Statistics or Comparative Statistics) is a multi-layered dynamic approach to crime reduction, quality of life improvement, and personnel and resource management. Compstat consists of four major components and/or principles; accurate and timely information at all levels, the most effective tactics for specific problems, rapid, focused deployment of resources to implement those tactics, and relentless follow up and assessment.
We also encourage you to use the technology related resources found on the Department's website to include; Coplogic (Online Reporting) and Coachella Valley Crime Stoppers (Online Tip Site)
