Mission Statement

“To protect and serve the public, prevent crime and provide professional law enforcement services to our community.” 

This mission statement guides the operation of the Waterford Police Department and the conduct of its members. These are our fundamental beliefs from which our daily work, operational decisions and organizational directives are based. 

Our primary mission is to protect those who rely on us for their safety, and to serve our community in times of need. We work with our community to help us deter crime, protect others and educate the public. The Waterford Police Department delivers professional and dedicated service to all in our community. 

Professional and dedicated service means that the performance outcomes comply with our agency standards established for our agency-our Oath of Office, Code of Ethics, Agency Rules, Policies Directives, General Supervisory Orders, and Work Productivity. 

These fundamental beliefs are the standard by which our members professionally execute their public safety responsibilities.
