Members of the Greenhills Police Department, in partnership with our citizens, will excel in providing dependable and professional service to ensure the safety of our community.
Integrity: Personal honesty is the foundation for trust of the people. Integrity is the most valued police officer’s virtue.
Honor: We are sworn to protect and preserve all human life, and serve with honor. We will scrupulously observe the rights of all suspects, but we will enforce the law with fidelity. We will give recidivists the scrutiny they deserve within the limits of the Constitution.
Respect: We will treat all persons with compassion and understanding, always demonstrating our strong belief that one should always treat others as they would like to be treated. A significant part of our business involves customer service. All personnel shall treat ordinary citizens with extraordinary respect. Each citizen-police encounter should foster a feeling of goodwill that extends throughout the community. We will treat all persons with dignity and respect, regardless of their race, creed, sex or social position.
Excellence: Our demeanor, and our appearance, should be above reproach. An unkempt appearance reflects poorly on all of us. We will constantly strive to improve our skills, knowledge, and abilities to improve our performance. By reaffirming our goal of overall excellence, we set the standard for pride in ourselves and in our department, always being mindful that members of the Greenhills Police Department, in both their professional and personal lives, are held to a higher standard than those we serve.
Accountability: We are accountable to each other and to the citizens we serve. They are the source of our authority.
