Mission Statement of the Kure Beach Police

The mission statement of the Kure Beach Police is to maximize the quality of life of the citizens we serve.  To uphold the law fairly and firmly; to prevent crime; to address the problems of the citizens we serve; to pursue and bring to justice those who violate the law in an expedient manner; to keep the peace of the town in Kure Beach; to do all this with integrity, common sense and sound judgment.

We will be compassionate, courteous and patient. We will act without showing fear, favor or prejudice to the rights of others.  We will be professional, calm and restrained in the face of violence and irrational behavior.

We will strive to reduce the fears of the public and, and in so far as we can, reflect its priorities in the actions we take.  We will change and mold our department as necessary to maximize our service in meeting the needs of a growing community.  We will respond to well-founded criticism with a willingness to change. We recognize that innovation may require adjustment and evaluation before reaching an optimum level of service.
