Our mission is to partner with the community to solve problems and improve public safety in a manner that is fair, impartial, transparent, and consistent. Our mandate is to do so with honor and integrity, while at all times conducting ourselves with the highest ethical standards to maintain public confidence.
- We Treat Members of the Public with Respect and Dignity. We Maintain the Highest Levels of Integrity and Professionalism in all Actions. We will treat all those we serve in a compassionate, sensitive, courteous and professional manner, regardless of sex, race, lifestyle or reason for law enforcement contact. The integrity of the Department must not be compromised. There can be no question or suspicion among the citizenry regarding Department ethics. Professionalism requires impeccable conduct, careful protection of all citizens’ rights and the maintenance of high levels of accountability from all members of the Department.
- We are committed to Solving Neighborhood Problems. We Care about the Quality of Life in the City’s Neighborhoods and Believe that our Services Must Answer their Needs. The Department will provide a rapid and effective response to life threatening situations and other public safety emergencies. Yet, we must seek new ways to address the contemporary neighborhood problems of crime, fear of crime, disorder, and physical and social decay. We are committed to providing a highly visible presence in all the City’s neighborhoods.
- We Maintain Open Communication with all the Communities We Serve. Their Input Helps to Determine Law Enforcement Policies, Priorities and Strategies. The Department recognizes the need to collaborate with the public in order to reduce crime, disorder, fear and all those negative factors lessening the quality of life. We cannot effectively deal with these by ourselves. Through open communication, we strive to increase public understanding of law enforcement complexities, to ensure the certainty that Department priorities match community expectations, and to inform the public of the reasons for police actions. The more communication between law enforcement and citizens, the more likely crime rates will fall.
