The patrol function is a primary law enforcement function and embraces much more than the act of patrolling. It is a generalized function in which officers engage in a wide variety of activities including but not limited to enforcing traffic and criminal law, answering complaints, conducting investigations, community relations, transporting prisoners, crime prevention activities, etc.  The Clarksville Police Department operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, to provide the citizens and visitors with law enforcement services. The department will provide the same services around the clock day or night such as answering calls for service, preventive patrol, traffic enforcement, and responding to emergencies.
