Sidney B. Andrews Jr.
Chief, Centerville Police Dept.
It is the mission of the Centerville Police Department to work with the citizens of our community to preserve life, maintain human rights, protect property, and promote individual responsibility and community commitment. This teamwork effort is the move of the future. We will strive to strengthen public confidence in the organization, develop and maintain positive relations with the community and to promote a safe and friendly community through enforcement and education.
The Centerville Police Department’s vision of the future is one of change to being more proactive in the delivery of community policing: strengthening the role of enforcement of federal, provincial and municipal laws, and the provision of quality management of the Police Service.
We shall always engage in behavior that is beyond ethical reproach and reflects the integrity of police professionals. It is essential that all members remember that in the execution of their duties they act not for themselves but for the good of the public. They shall respect and protect the right of individuals and perform their service with honesty, zeal, courage, discretion, fidelity, and sound judgment.
Police Officers must seek and preserve public confidence by demonstrating impartial service to law, and by offering service and trust to all members of the public.
