MISSION

Safeguard the Public and Prevent Crime

VISION

With the prevention of crime being the most important duty of a police officer, each officer must direct their efforts constantly to that object, being assured that the best evidence of their efficiency is found in the absence of crime, rather than the number of arrests.

VALUES

KNOWLEDGE: Knowledge of the diverse needs of our community and those we serve.

PROFESSIONALISM: Taking an active role in establishing and maintaining a professional image of law enforcement in all contacts through honesty and integrity.

DEDICATION: Committed to serving the needs of the public in a compassionate and impartial fashion.
