The mission of the Jennings Police Department, in partnership with the community, is to protect life and property, to understand and serve the needs of the city’s neighborhoods and to improve the quality of life by building capacities to maintain order, resolve problems and apprehend criminals in a manner consistent with the law and reflective of shared community values.
- A community free from crime and disorder remains an unachieved ideal; nevertheless, consistent with the values of a free society, achieving this ideal must be the primary goal of the Department.
- We strive to promote efficiency throughout the Department, while recognizing each person our members come in contact with is an individual, and must not be subjected to impersonal treatment.
- We wish to work with members of the community without regard to color, race, or beliefs. The officers of the Department are a part of the community, not a separate entity.
- Training, discipline, and ultimately professionalism are goals the Department will continue to achieve. Every Officer and civilian employee should remain committed to providing quality service and protection for their community.
