The Mission of the Bath Township Police Department is to provide high quality, progressive and proactive law enforcement services. Our mission is to preserve and even improve the quality of life for the residents, visitors and people just passing through, by working as a partner with the community. Lastly, our mission is to maintain a highly trained and highly motivated group of officers so that we can better serve the community.
Values are those principles that we hold ourselves to so that we can accomplish our mission and vision. Our values guide our professional and personal lives so that the public will have an exemplary level of trust and faith in each officer and in the department as a whole. Our values are:
Ø Advocate: To be an advocate for victims, citizens and those unable to stand up for themselves. To be an advocate for the rights of every individual, including victims and suspects so as to ensure those persons who are guilty will be punished and those that are innocent will be protected.
Ø Dedication: To be dedicated in our role as a police officer, public servant and community leader. This means being relentless in our efforts to make each resident’s life safer and more enjoyable.
Ø Trust: Our livelihood is based on the public having trust in each of us. We must perform knowing that we must maintain and build on that trust. Everything we do will either build on that trust or take away from it.
Ø Teamwork: We must work as a team with the community, with the other township departments, with other police departments and with each other within the police department. One person acting alone cannot make a difference. One community can.
The Vision of the Bath Township Police Department is to set the standard for how law enforcement is administered. We want every citizen to have the highest level of respect for the department as well as each and every person who comes in contact with the department. Our Vision is to be leaders in the law enforcement community and to be the yard-stick to which other departments are measured. These are lofty goals. In order to attain this vision we must constantly strive to be better tomorrow than we are today.
