The Davis Police Department utilizes a beat management system, which encourages officers to use their initiative and ideas to solve problems in their assigned areas. We focus on listening to the needs of the community and use the information to practice intelligence led policing (ILP).  Although the Patrol Division is the back bone of the agency, there are many opportunities to participate in specialized units, such as: SWAT, Hostage Negotiation, the Yolo County Drug Task Force (YONET), Special Assignments and Focused Enforcement (SAFE) Unit, Investigations and School Resource Officer.
