Uniform Patrol Division 

This division patrols Athens-Clarke County and meets the public on a regular basis. These officers wear the uniform of the department and patrol in or out of marked police cars for high visibility. In the downtown area, these officers sometimes patrol on bicycles. A majority of police reports, traffic citations, and other administrative reports are generated by this division.

The Uniform Patrol Division is divided into two patrol precincts -- East and West -- and follows the same watch schedule.

Captain Jeffery Johnson leads the East Precinct and also commands the Downtown Unit.
Captain Derek Scott leads the West Precinct and also commands the Traffic Unit.
