Mission Statement

Police Interceptor

This law enforcement agency is dedicated to effectively delivering equitable and impartial enforcement of laws and ordinances to protect human life, property and to preserve the public peace.  We will do so lawfully, ethically, within resources and without unnecessary risk.  In accomplishing our responsibility of protection and enforcement, the members of this agency will protect Constitutional guarantees, promote crime victims’ rights and respect human dignity.

We are committed to the enhancement of a police-community partnership, and will assist the members of our community with the identification and resolution of problems, in an effort to improve quality of life.  Integrity, intelligence and initiative shall form the basis for our actions.  With credibility, competence and a sense of community, we will give the highest quality performance of law enforcement services possible, while continuously striving for the highest professional standards.

Value Statement


Public safety is a fundamental public service and an essential function of a democratic society.  Police Officers take risks and suffer inconveniences to protect the lives and secure the safety of fellow citizens, and they endure such risks and tolerate such inconveniences on behalf of strangers.  Making a difference in the quality of life is an opportunity that policing provides and few other professions can offer.  Consequently, police work, though challenging, is one of the more rewarding, noble and selfless professions in society.  Therefore, the highest ethical standards must be maintained in order to keep the public’s trust.  This trust is a critical and precious commodity for an effective law enforcement agency to have, and yet, it is extremely fragile and easily lost.  We shall safeguard this public trust through adherence to our code of ethics.

Newton Police Honor GuardThe Newton Police Department enjoys a reputation for professional excellence.  We shall strive to meet all objectives and goals of the police mission with an unwavering commitment to personal and organizational integrity. 

 This department is guided in its operation by laws, ordinances, written directives, Rules and Regulations and a Code of Ethics.  In addition to legal and administrative requirements, police departments are significantly influenced by their principles and values. 

We shall uphold the spirit, as well as the statement, of our Public Oath of Office, having accountability to those we serve.
