Yuma Police Department Mission Statement

Maintaining quality of life in the City of Yuma, while continuing to respect individual liberties and personal dignity, will be the benchmark used to gauge our success in the delivery of law enforcement services.

Remaining mindful of the people's will, and continuing to be responsive to the City of Yuma's needs will be the standards that our performance is measured against.

The elimination of criminal activity as it affects quality of life will be our mission, and it will continue to be so, as long as crime deprives citizens of their right to feel secure in their homes and in thier lives.

The delivery of timely, courteous, quality service is the mandate to the men and women of the Yuma Police Department, always without the use of unnecessary force, and always with the intent of solving problems for the citizens who call on us.  Our goal will always be to serve the public with pride, professionalism and integrity.
