Terre Haute Police Department


General Information

     The Uniform Division consists of 3 overlapping shifts of uniform police officers.  These shifts are broken down into 3 separate groups labeled A, B, and C.  There are 5-8 officers in each group and 22-26 officers on each shift.  Doing this enables us to provide even coverage throughout the day and night and there is never a time when the city is without police officers to patrol and respond to areas they are needed.  In addition to these officers there are 4 Sergeants and a Lieutenant assigned to each shift that supervise the uniform patrolmen and respond to calls with the officers. 

     Uniform officers respond to a very wide range of calls.  This could be something as simple as a motorist needing assistance or as serious as an active shooter.  The Terre Haute Police Department is one of the 10 largest police agencies in the state of Indiana and prides itself in being one of the best.
