The Mission of the New Providence Police Department is to protect and serve all people without bias in an efficient and professional manner. We will enhance the quality of life while instilling a sense of security within the community.
Members of the New Providence Police Department are vigilant in their patrol efforts and aware of their role as national security agents to guard against terrorism in addition to their regular duties.
All members of the department are aware of global concerns relating to terrorism and act locally to deter terrorist activity or crimes that contribute to terrorism. All members will seek to uncover suspicious activity, share and coordinate information relating to such activity and be vigilant to protect critical infrastructure that could be vulnerable to attack.
Members of the New Providence Police Department are aware that the manner in which we conduct ourselves while providing law enforcement services affects the public perception of our professionalism.
Our mission is a contract with the citizens we are sworn to protect, as well as an affirmation of their trust. Each employee is charged with protecting and promoting the essential elements of this contract.
The New Providence Police Department exists to serve the community by protecting life and property; by preventing crime; by enforcing the laws, and by maintaining order for all citizens.
Central to our mission are the values that guide our work and decisions, and help us contribute to the quality of life in New Providence.
Our values are characteristics or qualities of worth. They are non-negotiable. Although we may need to balance them, we will never ignore them for the sake of expediency or personal preference.
We hold our values constantly before us to teach and remind us, and the community we serve, of our ideals. They are the foundation upon which our policies, goals and operations are built.
In fulfilling our mission, we need the support of citizens, elected representatives and Borough Officials in order to provide the quality of service our values commit us to providing.
We, the men and women of the New Providence Police Department, value:
HUMAN LIFE • INTEGRITY • EXCELLENCE
LAWS AND CONSTITUTION • ACCOUNTABILITY
COOPERATION • PROBLEM-SOLVING • OURSELVES
