Operations Bureau (Northern / Southern Sector)
The Tallahassee Police Department has jurisdiction over a community of 101 square miles (261.5 square km). To provide for the implementation of crime prevention and enforcement strategies unique to specific neighborhoods the total area is first divided in to two major sectors. Those sectors are further distinguished into Districts and those Districts into smaller sections referred to as “Beats.” Citizen and business interactions are a key component of the Beat system, and regular meetings are held inside these areas to form partnerships that assist in preventing and solving crimes.
