The Aurora Police Department is responsible for providing law enforcement services to a growing, urban/suburban community with unique and ever-changing needs. We strongly believe that the challenges facing the Police Department can only be addressed effectively by connecting with community leaders, school administrators, members of the business community, non-profit organizations, other government agencies, neighborhood groups and most importantly, individual citizens. It is through this spirit of partnership that we will continue to see further reductions in crime and we will enhance the quality of life for those who live, work and play in our city.

Organizational Mission Statement

To promote a desirable quality of life in our community, we are committed to maintaining and improving peace, order and safety through excellence in law enforcement and community service.

Individual Value Statement
