We hold ourselves to a
high standard of conduct in everything we do, everything we say and everything
we represent. We recognize that we hold positions of trust in our community. We
are measured by how we perform our duties and live our lives. Integrity is the
cornerstone of our profession and our most important value.
Every member of the
San Marino Police Department is critical to the accomplishment of our mission
and goals. Only through the hard work, tenacity and professionalism of everyone
can the Department be successful. We take our responsibilities seriously and
are constantly striving to attain perfection. Hard work embraces the philosophy
of continuous improvement. We will continuously strive to surpass our previous
accomplishments. Each member of the Department holds themselves personally
accountable for what takes place in their sphere of influence. We embrace
excellence as our driving force.
Demands for police
service in our community are high. We work hard at supporting each other and maintaining
positive lines of communication to meet these demands. All of us have a voice
in how our department is managed. A football team, no matter how talented or
well coached, cannot be successful if they each use a different “playbook” and
compete as a group of individuals. We are no different.
Pride in Service
Police work is a noble
profession. Our satisfaction comes from making a difference in our community.
Our primary function is to serve the public. We view San Marino as our
community. We recognize that there will always be those who need our
protection, our guidance and our help. In providing these services, we will
always be mindful of treating others as we would want our families, friends,
loved ones or ourselves to be treated. Every public contact is unique and
provides an opportunity to strengthen our public support. We will proactively
address crime, disorder, and quality of life issues. We strive to build peace
and tranquility in our community.
