Mission Statement

Through our Team-Policing approach, all Department employees are individually responsible for the safety of every citizen who resides, works, or travels through our community.  By empowering every employee to solve problems and prevent crime at their individual levels, all members take pride in the fact that Bay Harbor Islands is one of the safest communities in the State of Florida.  Through community-based and intelligence-led policing techniques, we proactively work together with the members of our community to maintain the highest quality of life.

Motto: “Pursuing Excellence”
