Preserve & Advance Democratic Values
We shall uphold this country's democratic values as embodied in the constitution and dedicate ourselves to the preservation of life, individual freedom, and justice for everyone.
Improve the Quality of Community Life
We must understand the importance of community values and expectations, be responsive to the concerns of citizens, and encourage officers to expand their roles in helping the community to develop into a better place to live.
The role of the police is to resolve conflict through impartial enforcement of law, not through burden of judgment or punishment. All persons shall be treated equitably and with compassion.
We must recognize that our success is dependant on the trust and confidence of the citizens we serve. Therefore, we shall always engage in behavior which is beyond reproach and reflects the integrity of police professionals.
We pride ourselves on being capable and caring people who provide a valued service to the citizens of Granbury and we shall promote pride in our community, agency, and profession.
Law enforcement and public safety are a community-wide concern, thus we must actively build effective working relationships with other governmental, public, and private service agencies in pursuit of mutual goals.
We must have a vision for the future of our community and our agency and make a firm commitment to goals which will enable us to attain that end.
We shall aspire to meet or exceed recognized law enforcement standards in every duty we undertake. We pledge to establish high performance standards to ensure public confidence and trust.
We shall strive to provide the citizens of Granbury with the highest quality of police service possible and accomplish our department mission.
