The mission of the Spokane Police Department is to demonstrate excellence in policing by working in partnership with the community we serve to:
- Prevent and reduce crime, the fear of crime, and improve the quality of life for our residents and visitors.
- Enforce laws while safeguarding the constitutional rights of all people.
- Provide high quality police services to all of our residents and visitors through integrity, compassion, and a commitment to innovation.
- Create a work environment in which we recruit, train, and develop an exceptional team of employees.
The 2017 Strategic Plan provides the framework for operations, work performance, and focus for every Spokane Police Department (SPD) employee, whether commissioned or non-commissioned.
