Alfred Police Department

The principal mission of the Alfred Police Department is to preserve the rights of citizens and reduce fear in the community. This is accomplished through the prevention of crime by the protection of persons and property, and by the maintenance of order in public places. The Alfred Police Department anticipates and responds to events that threaten lives, property and public order.

It is essential all members remember that in the execution of their duties they act not for themselves but for the good of the public. They shall respect and protect the rights of the individuals and perform their services with honesty, zeal, courage, discretion, fidelity, and sound judgment.

Police officers must seek and preserve public confidence by demonstrating impartial service to law, and by offering service and trust to all members of the public.

It is the expressed policy of this department that police officers will use force only when the exercise of persuasion, advice and warning is found to be insufficient to obtain public cooperation to an extent necessary upon any particular occasion for achieving a police objective.
