Core Values

Integrity

We are committed to the enforcement of laws and the preservation of order and property. We are honest, truthful and consistent in our words and actions, and therefore worthy of the public’s trust. We exercise discretion in a manner that is accept gifts or special considerations as a consequence of our office.

Professionalism

We treat the public and our colleagues with courtesy and respect. We understand that our appearance, words, and demeanor contribute to the public’s confidence in us. We are responsive to the community and deliver services promptly and efficiently.

Teamwork

We work together as one organization in carrying out the mission of the department; our respective units do not act as distinct “silos” from one another. As individual members of the department we are respectful to each other and work collectively to solve problems and serve the community.

Fairness And Impartiality

We act with fairness, restraint and impartiality in carrying out our duties. We work with the community to continually understand and overcome cultural influences and unconscious biases. We understand that our actions, combined with the way we treat members of the community contributes to our “legitimacy” in the eyes of the public.

Advocacy And Empathy

We have compassion for victims of crime. As members of the community, we have respect for and promote the diversity of the community. We advocate for social and other supportive services for victims, youth and others involved in the criminal justice system.

Efficiency

We keep abreast of the standard procedures, legal issues and innovative topics in modern policing through regular training. We exercise rigor in thinking strategically about identifying trends, exploring alternative solutions and solving problems.

Special Message

The Palisades Park Police Department stands in solidarity with our community and with the people across the country over the senseless death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers in Minnesota. The excessive and criminal acts of the Minneapolis officers are in no way a reflection of our agency, nor is it a reflection of law enforcement in general.

Our priority is the safety of all of our community members regardless of age, race, religion, or sexual orientation. Our goal continues to focus on serving the community. On behalf of the department, our message to the public is this: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” –Martin Luther King, Jr.
