Caldwell Police Mission Statement

We, the men and women of the Caldwell Police Department, are dedicated to providing excellent service through partnerships that continually build trust, reduce crime, create a safe environment and enhance the quality of life in our community. We will always serve with honor, courage and a strong commitment to our community. We are committed to these principles:

Honor guides police officers to exemplify the ultimate in ethical and moral behavior; to never lie, cheat or steal, to abide by uncompromising code of integrity, respect human dignity and respect others. The quality of maturity, dedication, trust and dependability commit officers to act responsibly, to be accountable for their actions, fulfill their obligations, and to hold others accountable for their actions.

Courage is the mental, moral and physical strength ingrained in police officers. It carries them through hardships of violent encounters and helps them overcome fear. It is the inner strength that enables an officer to do what is right, to adhere to a higher standard or personal conduct and to make tough decisions under stress and pressure.

Commitment is the spirit of determination and dedication found in police officers. It leads to the highest order of discipline for individuals and units. It is the ingredient that enables 24-hour a day dedication to the profession and city. It inspires us the unrelenting determination to achieve a standard of excellence in every endeavor.
