Our goal for the community
The mission of the Millis Police Department is to consistently find ways to promote, preserve, and deliver a sense of security, safety and quality of life to the people of Millis. We believe that law enforcement has certain values at its foundation. To fulfill our mission, we are committed to:
Acknowledge our responsibility to the citizens of Millis, our source of authority;
Performing our duties within the spirit and the letter of our laws and constitution;
Remaining sensitive to human needs and treating each person with respect, compassion and dignity;
Approaching each situation as unique and responding creatively with empathy and prudent use of discretion;
Promoting mutual trust between the Department and the citizens and businesses of Millis;
Enhancing safety and a feeling of security for our residents; fostering a quality work environment that encourages open communications and affords trust, respect, and support for each member.
The Millis Police Department wants the community to know that we will remain committed to this mission statement no matter the circumstance. We stand in solidarity with our community, outraged, saddened and angered at what happened to Mr. Floyd. What happened to Mr. Floyd is an attack on everything that the law enforcement profession stands for. The actions in Minneapolis is not a reflection of all police officers across the country, especially the officers of the Millis Police Department. Our department will continue to protect, support, and serve our community members with the utmost integrity and professionalism during these difficult times. Our country may be divided on some issues, but there should be no disagreement when it comes to equality.
