Mission Statement
                                  Michael S. Grovo - Police Chief
The mission of the Buxton Police Department is to uphold the law fairly and firmly: to reduce crime; to pursue and bring to justice those who break the law; to protect, help and reassure the community: and to be seen to do all this with integrity, common sense, sound judgment, teamwork and respect.

We must be compassionate, courteous and patient, acting without fear, favor or prejudice to the rights of others while applying intelligent use of discretion of the law.  We need to be professional, calm and restrained in the face of violence and apply only that force which is necessary to accomplish our lawful duty.  We must strive to reduce the fears of the public and so far as we can, to reflect their priorities in the action we take.

It is also our mission to strengthen public confidence in the organization, develop and maintain positive relationships with the community and promote the concept of teamwork for the benefit of all, while at the same time promoting a safe and friendly community through proactive enforcement and education.  We must respond to well-founded criticism with willingness for change in response to the changing needs of our community.
