AS A LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY:

  1. Acknowledge the citizens as the source of police authority.
  2. Administer the law without bias.
  3. Recognize the dignity and worth of all people.
  4. Encourage cooperation and support at the neighborhood level, as well as the greater community.
  5. Provide services in a sensitive, yet effective, manner.
  6. Seek to gain “respect” of all people.

This mission statement is born out of the “Departmental Professionalism-Policy & Procedure”, that being a four-tier system:

  1. Professionalism
  2. Expectation
  3. Accountability
  4. Respect
