We will justly enforce all laws of this City, State, and Nation while focusing on the aggressive investigation of drug related activity and strict enforcement of laws pertaining to dangers to our families and children such as Driving Under the Influence and Domestic Abuse.


We will endeavor to educate our citizens, especially our youth, and give them the necessary information and guidance to help them protect themselves and make positive decisions regarding drug and alcohol use. We will keep our community informed and through community policing efforts forge a partnership between the police and the citizens. We will take proactive steps to deter criminals and prevent crimes before they occur.
