A Diverse Community is a Strong Community
I hope you and your family had a safe holiday season. Thank you to our community members and business owners who remembered the men and women of the Hillsboro Police Department with goodies and cards. Your generosity is noticed and appreciated. From everyone at Hillsboro Police, we wish you a happy and healthy 2018.
As we reflect on 2017 and plan for the New Year, we remain focused on community policing and fulfilling our mission.
Hillsboro Police Department mission:
To work with the community to prevent and suppress crime
To develop a creative, diverse and professional workforce
To serve people sincerely and professionally
To earn and hold the public trust
To build valued partnerships
Honor justice through fairness
Hillsboro is a strong community, economically, physically, and socially. We are fortunate to live and work in one of the most diverse cities in Oregon and the country.
As we observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day, it’s a great time to talk about diversity and its value.
At Hillsboro Police, we seek to reflect the public we serve. Embracing diversity builds trust and helps us effectively meet the community’s needs. Inclusive communities that embrace diversity provide a better quality of life for everyone. Communities thrive when members experience a sense of belonging.
When our community members see themselves in our officers, we continue to build a healthy community. Breaking the mold of stereotypes takes courage and initiative from everyone, community leaders and community members alike.
The Hillsboro Police Department values open communication and transparency. We share information through our website, Facebook, and Twitter. These platforms enhance our ability to connect with the community, opening a dialogue between police and community members.
We invite you to become involved with our department – volunteer with one of our community outreach programs, attend a class, or join us at a community event. There are many opportunities for us to partner with you to make Hillsboro an even better community.
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’
