Serving The Community –

The reality of modern police work differs in many respects from the traditional ideas of simply keeping the peace, protecting life and property, and dealing with crime and criminals. These aspects are still essential and are still a vital part of overall police activities, but the total concept of police work is far wider. Perhaps the police role today can be described most aptly as “COMMUNITY ORIENTED”.
