Guiding Principles


  • Life and individual freedoms are sacred. All persons should be treated fairly and equitably. The role of the police is to resolve problems through the enforcement of laws - not through the imposition of judgment and punishment.


  • Because law enforcement and public safety reflect community-wide concern, the police must actively seek the involvement of citizens in all aspects of policing.


  • The fundamental responsibility of the police is provision of quality service. The department's employees are its most valuable asset. Employee involvement in departmental activities is essential for maintaining a productive environment. Employees should be treated fairly and equitably and recognition of basic human dignity as a means of enriching their work life.
