Village of Mamaroneck Police Departments Mission Statement
The principal mission of the Village of Mamaroneck Police Department is to serve the community by protecting life and property; by preventing crime; by enforcing local, state and federal laws; and by anticipating and responding to events that threaten public order and the quality of life for all citizens.
We act not for ourselves, but for the good of the public. We consider it our duty and privilege, not only to protect our citizens from the criminal, but also to respect, protect and defend the rights of all citizens and to perform our duties with honesty, zeal, courage, discretion, fidelity and sound judgment.
We value human life above all else. We will give first priority to situations that threaten life. We will use force only when necessary. We will treat all persons with courtesy and respect. In fulfilling our mission, we need the support of citizens, elected representatives, government officials and the criminal justice system in order to provide the quality of service our values commit us to providing.
We will, at all times, work in cooperation with community agencies and groups to promote understanding of and confidence in our efforts in law enforcement.
