Police Department

Mission

We, the Parachute Police Department, exist to serve all people within our jurisdiction with respect, fairness, and compassion.

We are committed to the prevention of crime; protection of life and property; preservation of peace, order, and safety; enforcement of laws and ordinances; and safeguarding of constitutional guaranties.

With community service as our foundation, we are driven by goals to enhance the quality of life, investigating problems as well as incidents, seeking solutions, and fostering a sense of security in communities and individuals.  We nurture public trust by holding ourselves to the highest standards of performance and ethics.

To fulfill its mission, the Parachute Police Department is dedicated to providing a quality work environment and development of its members through effective training and leadership.
