The LSC PD has a number of responsibilities that are performed on a routine basis. During extreme emergencies, the scope and priorities of police service may shift, drawing upon less vital components in an effort to supplement the primary mission of protection of life and property.

While the department will be able to respond to most situations and events independently, the need for outside assistance may arise. Provisions exist in the Basic Plan for seeking outside assistance in response to a major disaster. Additionally, LSC PD may acquire cooperation from other agencies through use of Memoranda of Understanding, where needed.
