Office of the Chief of Police
This office includes the Deputy Chief of Operations, Lt. Col. Brian Smith; the Deputy Chief of Support, Lt. Col. Dan Kelly; the Finance Unit; the Administrative Staff Officer; and the Office of Professional Standards. The Office of Professional Standards serves as the department's self-policing function; this function is frequently called "internal affairs" in other departments. The Office of Professional Standards also manages policy changes, maintains accreditation standards, conducts audits and facilitates annual department awards.

The Uniform Operations Bureau, commanded by Maj. Kevin Smith, is the department's largest bureau, comprising over 300 officers and supervisors.
