It is the mission of the Haddon Heights Police Department to provide professional, high quality and effective police service in partnership with the community. We, the members of the Haddon Heights Police Department, believe that our work has a vital impact on the quality of life in our community. To demonstrate our commitment to our profession, on and off duty, we subscribe to the following values:

Integrity
SIntegrity is defined as being honest, moral, upright and sincere. Public trust can only exist with our integrity and respect for one another. The foundation of the Haddon Heights Police Department is the high level of integrity of its employees.

Commitment to Employees

The department recognizes that its employees are the vital component to the successful delivery of police service. We believe we can achieve our highest potential by actively involving our employees in problem solving and improving police services. We support an organizational climate of mutual trust and respect.

Community Partnership

Recognizing the fact that police agencies were established as a result of society's voluntary limitation of personal freedoms, we encourage and expect the participation of the community in facilitating solutions to problems of mutual concern. We therefore solicit and support contributions from all members of this community regardless of race, sex, national origin or social status.

Community Sensitive Policing

Department members shall uphold laws in an ethical, impartial, courteous, and professional manner while respecting the rights and dignity of all persons. We shall strive to achieve a balance between enforcement and community needs that reflects both the spirit and the letter of the law.

Professionalism

Recognizing the changing and diverse needs of the community, the Haddon Heights Police Department promotes and encourages a policy of professional and individual excellence which is delivered and enhanced by continuing education and training. 

 

We realize fully that the expression of ideas is meaningless unless actively practiced. The integrity and professionalism demanded of members of the Haddon Heights Police Department shall ensure the proper, lawful and unbiased application of police powers.

 

Ronald S. Shute, Chief of Police
