The Rochester Police Department currently employs two part-time, sworn police officers. Part-time, sworn officers bear the very same responsibility and possess the same policing powers as their full-time counterparts. Their primary responsibility is to supplement the Department's efforts in the prevention and detection of crime and the general enforcement of laws while assigned specific police duties. The department's part-time sworn officer corps is a small, yet vital element of the department. With their assistance the department is more able than ever to provide seamless, responsible and respectful 24/7 service to the citizens of Rochester.
