We will treat all persons with respect and courtesy.
We will wisely deploy resources available to reduce the level of criminal victimization.
We will optimize communication with citizens to cooperatively identify needs and apprehend criminals.
We will provide professional concerned responses to various medical and social emergency situations.
We believe that integrity is the basis for public trust. Honesty and integrity are not to be the exception within the department, but a requirement of all personnel.
We will serve as facilitators to seek solutions to community problems by responsive utilization of resources available within and outside our police department including cooperative ventures with other police agencies.
