It is the mission of the Corcoran Police Department to provide a sense of security for the people by protecting life and property, enforcing laws and ordinances, and providing quality service to the community. The Department will display the highest integrity, and regard each citizen with a focused and unbiased attitude. Our citizens will determine our success.

The Department and its personnel can only succeed in their mission if we maintain our integrity. Trust is the core element. Once that trust is broken, by an individual or by the Department, our actions are rightfully called into question. The Department and its employees must hold themselves to a standard that is beyond reproach.

The Department is a proud institution and works to develop this pride in its sworn officers, civilian and volunteer personnel. We are proud of our rich tradition of providing quality police services to the residents and visitors of Corcoran. We are proud to be a part of a noble profession that is called upon to maintain order in a free society. We are proud of the real partnerships we have with the people we serve. We are proud of the highly motivated, highly trained, and highly respected personnel we have.

The cornerstone of this Department is the relationship we have with the community we serve. Our ability to be effective in carrying out our mission is based on the credibility we have with the community. Understanding that we are a part of, and not separate from, the community is critical.
Although we are granted full-time responsibility for policing the community, we cannot do it without the approval and cooperation of the public.

The Department strives to enhance this relationship in several ways: By ensuring that each police contact is carried out fairly and with respect; by seeking input from the public on our programs, procedures and priorities; by being active in community and its programs.
