The mission of the Frankfort Police Department is to provide law enforcement and crime prevention services in partnership with the citizens which creates and maintains a sense of security and improves the overall quality of life in the community.
To carry out this mission, the Frankfort Police Department has adopted a community based approach to policing. It is the organizational strategy that is based on the belief that both the police and the community must work together to identify, prioritize, and solve contemporary problems such as crime, drugs, and the fear of crime.
As the Frankfort Police Department carries out its mission, we have identified guiding values and broad goals for our members. These values reflect some of the major expectations for the Department as we deliver the best possible services to the citizens of our community.
