That is the mission of the Fall River Police Department; and we will strive daily to fulfill that duty to the citizens of Fall River.
Service with sensitivity as we continue to strive to me t the needs of our citizens, while being attuned to identifying those needs and being sensitive as to how to best accomplish the task. We resolve to establish frank and open communication with dialogue that best allows us to provide that which is needed by the citizens that we serve.
Pride in partnership; to be proud of what we have accomplished together as partners: a new station, a new vision, and an enlightened understanding of each other – the police and the people that we proudly serve. It is our goal that the citizens of Fall River will be proud of their police, and that the police will be proud to serve the citizens.
And lastly, commitment to the compact that exists between the police and the community. There is no police authority without the conferment of that authority through the will of the people. There must exist mutual trust, civility and respect; and both the police and the people must work toward that end. At the same time, we make a commitment to excellence – to do the very best that we can as we serve the community.
We solemnly pledge to enhance the quality of life for the people of Fall River. The only means to that end is a concerted effort, by civilians and police alike, to protect our city from disorder and the criminal element, corner by corner, street by street and block by block, until every neighborhood is safe haven for our people.
