We believe in maintaining an Association which is progressive and innovative – where professionalism, loyalty, honesty and integrity prevail, where pride in effort and credibility are the paramount importance, and where academic debate, effective communication and introspection are highly encouraged and practiced.
We believe that the Association should be part of a statewide community, striving to develop an open atmosphere of communication, information and public awareness, and striving to improve and maintain public trust and confidence.
We believe in fiscal responsibility.
We believe that the Association should take an active, nonpartisan role in developing, monitoring and supporting quality law enforcement legislation – working closely with community groups, legislators, the media, private business, and other law enforcement organizations toward this goal.
We believe in training and support for the professional development of law enforcement personnel at all levels – training which is high in quality, affordable and frequently available, and where technology transfer and technical assistance are encouraged and provided on an ongoing basis.
We believe in maintaining an active Association where member representation and participation from the different geographic regions of the state on the Board of Directors, as well as the organization’s committees, are a high priority, and where the best interest of all members comes clearly into focus in the decision making process.
