The Spokane Police Department is committed to providing excellence in policing, enhancing the safety and security of individuals, and building partnerships to better the lives of our community members as a whole.
Our vision is to serve every member of our community with professionalism, integrity and compassion so that with every interaction we continue to build trust, preserve safety and model ethical policing.
Integrity: adherence to ethical principles; soundness of character, honesty
Professionalism: holding to the highest and most effective standards of the law enforcement profession while continually pursuing progressive improvement through education, training and experience.
Compassion: a feeling of concern and understanding for an individual’s distress, accompanied by a desire to help.
The 2020–2021 Strategic Plan provides the framework for operations, work performance, and focus for every Spokane Police Department (SPD) employee, whether commissioned or non-commissioned.
