PHILOSOPHY OF THE AVON POLICE DEPARTMENT
Municipal government represents the democratic form of government in its most basic form. The City of Avon represents the self-government of the citizens of the city. The citizens, acting through their elected representatives, determine the laws by which they wish to be governed and the manner in which those are to be enforced.
The Avon Police Department is a creation of city government. It is the duty of the officers of that department to carry out the desires of the citizens of the city through the laws established for the general good of the population.
The philosophy of the Avon Police Department is to provide the citizens of the City with safety, security, and peaceful enjoyment from the threats of those who break the law. The Police Department is to accomplish this by the fair, just, and even handed enforcement of the law, recognizing the intrinsic value and rights of each individual and the ultimate idea of maintaining the peace.
At all times, the Police Department must keep in mind that it is a service organization. The service of the public can best be accomplished by communication with the citizens served. This communication within the community shall be augmented by cooperation with the other law enforcement agencies which the Avon Police Department has contact.
