To improve the quality of life in Adams County by reducing crime, fear of crime and disorder; by working with all the citizens to preserve life, maintain rights and freedoms, protect property and to promote partnership with the community.
We, the members of the Adams County Sheriff's Office, will provide high levels of leadership, professionalism and integrity in all we do. We will lead by seeking citizen and employee ideas for continuous improvement of our policies and services. We will show our professionalism by providing responsibly managed efficient services that will reinforce community strengths and yet still allow us to pursue criminal offenders. Finally, we will show our integrity by respecting the rights of all people and by treating them as we want to be treated. We will constantly strive to put these ideals into action.
