MLPD Mission Statement
The mammoth lakes police department’s mission is to provide quality law enforcement services, while building partnerships to prevent crime, maintain public trust and enhance the quality of life throughout town.
We will remain a full service law enforcement agency and be responsive to the community’s needs, using both traditional and non-traditional police methods.
We hold ourselves to the highest ethical and professional standards of conduct, always treating people with dignity, fairness and respect.
MLPD Department Goals
The primary mission for the members of the mammoth lakes police department is to provide professional, congenial and exemplary service to the public. This should be on the minds of all police department personnel as we perform our duties throughout the day.
First and foremost in the minds of every police officer employed by this organization should be the concept of officer safety. This clearly is the foundation of every law enforcement professional, and is enhanced through ongoing training, teamwork and education. The mammoth lakes police department strives to provide our employees with excellent equipment and training opportunities to meet this standard without compromise.
We have a great job in a great community. We are well compensated; including an excellent benefit package, with an outstanding team of employees. Do not accept anything less than 100% from yourself and don’t allow others to perform below that standard.
Treat people right, put bad-guys in jail and do first-rate investigative work. This is what every police officer has sworn as their duty, let’s live up to it.
By incorporating much of what is mentioned above we will continue to set a higher standard, as we move closer and closer to excellence. The quicker that becomes the new standard and we can move to a higher level.
Following are the goals that have been set for this year and should be the focus of all department members as we serve this community:
*EXCELLENCE IN COMMUNITY RELATIONS*
*WORKING COOPERATIVELY WITH WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT*
*BECOME INCREASINGLY ENGAGED WITH THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY*
*IMPROVED ORGANIZATIONAL FITNESS AND PROFESSIONAL APPEARANCE*
*ORGANIZATIONAL TRANSITION / SELF-IMPROVEMENT*
*IMPROVING DEPARTMENTAL TRAINING*
Do something to make a positive difference in someone’s life every day!!
