Whenever possible, members of the Division also conduct proactive enforcement of State Laws and Local Ordinances. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life in our City by protecting life and property, and by investigating criminal activity at its earliest stage. We will aggressively identify and apprehend criminals and deter the commission of crime by reducing the opportunities for such crimes. We will be responsive to social, geographical and economical changes within our community. We will work diligently with our Local, State and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies to accomplish these goals through strategic planning, timely response to citizens’ needs, safeguarding victim’s rights and crime prevention efforts. We are committed to the highest professional law enforcement standards under the guidance of State Law, International Accreditation and State Certification.
