How We Are Organized

Like many corporations, we have two distinct yet tightly integrated units of our organization – an administrative arm and an operations arm. The administrative unit is lead by a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and a board of directors. The president serves as the CEO – Chief Executive Officer of the U.S.A. Patriot Police Officer Division.

The operations division of the U.S.A. Patriot Police are lead by President and Commanding Officer. He serves as the COO or Chief Operating Officer of the corporation. He oversees what is called the ‘chain of command.’ This chain of command is very important in that it provides clear direction, lines of communications, and accountability for everyone involved in the chain.

On an incident scene, the chain of command provides for identifying areas of responsibility and accountability for the personal safety of every individual working within the incident command system.

Under this system, each level only reports to one supervisor. Cadet’s and U.S.A. Patriot Police Officers report to a 2nd Lieutenant, who then reports to a Lieutenant, who then reports to a Captain. The Captains report to the Deputy Chiefs (rank of Lt. Cornel to Major General), who are responsible to the Commander and Chief the COO.

Teamwork is the foundation of our success – during an emergency and back at the station. Before you can become a good leader, you need to learn to be a good follower. Knowing and understanding how you fit into the chain of command will be one of the most important lessons you can learn. Know your position and play it well.

You will receive a copy of our current organizational chart – or chain of command – during your new recruit orientation.

To accommodate your busy and varying lifestyle, we have pre-scheduled duty shifts typically set a month ahead of time, including evening and weekend assignments. This ensures we have minimum staffing at all times.  

U.S.A. Patriot Police Officers are required to participate in a duty shift program. Beyond the minimum expectations, many of our Officers provide additional staffing and support for responses and special events as time permits. Our bunkroom (live-in) members are also required to be on duty a minimum four nights a week.

The U.S.A. Patriot Police Officer is dispatched through the Pinal center. Volunteers available at the station respond when dispatched. In times of high load when additional crews and staffing are needed, text messaging and emails alert members.
