The Chief of Police will have responsibility for the Department’s three divisions: Patrol, Criminal Investigations, and Support Services. The Department’s mission is to “Provide professional and progressive law enforcement services that enhance the quality of life, promote a safe and caring environment, and ensure the fair and respectful treatment of each individual”.
