This Department constitutes an organization justified solely on the basis of community service to our general public. The apprehension of suspects committing criminal acts is only a portion of our responsibility. The greater percentage of our time will be expended assisting the law-abiding citizens of our community. We will consider it our duty to protect and defend the rights of our citizens of the Town of Dewey Beach to the best of our abilities. We will strive to achieve our goals, protect and support individual rights while at all times providing security for persons and property in our community.
