Written by Sergeant Jesus Arocho and Patrol Officer Yvonne Molin, the new Mission Statement replaces one that hadn’t been updated since the 1990’s. Our mission statement emphasizes the importance of our relationship with the community to ensure our success.
"The Amherst Police Department values the dedication and integrity of each member of our department. We value the diversity of our community and are grateful for the confidence they have in us. We strive to protect the safety, rights and property of every person within the town of Amherst. We are committed to the enforcement of laws, preservation of order and improving the quality of life within our community. We do so in partnership with our community while holding ourselves to the highest professional and ethical standards. "
