The mission of the Belmont Police Department is to work with all citizens to preserve life, maintain human rights, and protect property; to hold ourselves accountable to our community and to recognize professional standards; to reduce crime, and the fear of crime, by facilitating positive police-citizen contacts. It is critical that all Department personnel understand, accept, and be aligned with the responsibilities of this mission and the concept of quality public service.
The Belmont Police Department shall maintain the highest standards of honor both on and off the job. We will be responsible for our conduct at all times, as any actions taken by the individual will reflect upon the whole of the department. We will retain the standards of etiquette, show kindness, uphold the law, and be merciful in the execution of our duties.
