  • Grants Pass Dept Of Public Safety Our police officers perform the duties normally associated with their positions such as patrol, investigations, drug enforcement, and community policing. Non-traditional duties include fire size-up, hydrant connections, fire ground support (such as air supply, logistics, public information, and support in the Incident Command Post). Our firefighters perform traditional fire services functions like structural and wildland fire suppression, building inspections, hazardous materials response, medical and rescue calls, and public education. Like our police officers, our firefighters assist with non-traditional tasks. It would not be uncommon for an engine company to process an entire accident scene, including driver information exchange when no police officers are available. Another example involves firefighters helping canvass neighborhoods to identify witnesses in major crime scene investigations. We have utilized firefighters who hold special photography skills to assist with crime scene photography.
