Effectively providing police services and protection, equally, without hesitation, to all citizens who are in the community, even to the point of sacrifice of life and limb in order to maintain the safety, security and welfare of all citizens.

Efficient

Efficient use of those resources allocated is of major importance to the department. It involves the efficient deployment of manpower, the maintenance and care of equipment and the wise use of time in preventive crime measures, so that the community is assured that their investment in the departmental resources is used in the most efficient manner.

Professional

Professionalism is gained by having a strong commitment toward the personal development of the men and women who make up the department.
