South Bend Police Department divides the city up into regional patrol areas, referred
to as "beats". There are four regions (Northwest, Northeast, Southeast
and Southwest). In addition to the beats shown, each region is assigned additional
patrol cars ("X cars") to assist the beat patrol units with additional
manpower to patrol area coverage. The specific number of X cars varies depending
upon several factors.
Certain shifts will also utilize citywide cars that assist on calls, and may be assigned specific duties (traffic, crime scene technicians, etc).
