The members of the Garden City Police Department are dedicated to the advancement of community policing and the development of a partnership with our community to serve its needs in a professional, efficient, and effective manner. We will strive to continually develop a comprehensive strategy that meets the public safety needs of the community and enhance the quality of life in Garden City.

We provide law enforcement services with a high emphasis on service, pride, and integrity. We recognize respect, fairness, and compassion as the foundation of our commitment to service. With service as our foundation, our emphasis is on problem solving where we identify and implement creative solutions to identified problems within our community. We are driven to foster a sense of security in our neighborhoods, among our visitors and in our business community.

We build and maintain public trust by holding ourselves to the highest standards of performance and ethics. To fulfill our mission, the Garden City Police Department recognizes that our employees are our best asset. We are committed to provide a people-orientated work environment where members may enjoy their jobs, utilize their talents, respect one another and grow. A key emphasis is placed on leadership so that we may identify and develop the future leaders of the Department from within.

We are committed to the prevention of crime and the protection of life and property; the preservation of peace, order, and safety; the enforcement of laws and ordinances; and the safeguarding of Constitutional guarantees. Our success will be measured by the improved working partnerships between police, schools, city government services and citizens and the realization that we have a community that is safe, viable and attractive for families and commerce.
