Mission First - People Always.
A tactically and technically proficient police department, dedicated to the relentless pursuit of justice.
We, the women and men of the Siloam Springs Police Department, have dedicated ourselves to a professional life of service to our community. We have sworn to defend and support the Constitution of the United States of America, and of the great State of Arkansas. We have sworn to protect others, and to aid them in protecting themselves, their loved ones, and their property. We have sworn to enforce the laws enacted by the legislative bodies at the Federal, State and local level.
We Do Not Accept This Charge Lightly
The Siloam Springs Police Department is a purpose-driven group of employees, dedicated to providing professional service. In our daily duties, we follow three concepts we call our pillars; they guide our decisions, actions and results. These pillars are: 1) constitutionally correct action; 2) morally and ethically sound engagement; and, 3) restrained tactics that are strictly within the authority delegated to us. In our daily conduct, we are guided by six principles and their associated values:
We are tactically and technically proficient, meeting society’s expectations to be prudent with our resources.
We are honest, forthright, and focused, pursuing the highest ethical standards.
We care about others and their circumstances.
We recognize the worth and diversity of individuals and cultures.
We remain steadfast in the performance of our sworn duty, showing neither undue favor or bias; exercising just practices in all we do.
We hold ourselves and others responsible of their actions in accordance with our delegated duties and authority.
The department works within this framework to accomplish its primary goal – the protection of life and property through actions that support individual rights, help improve public safety, and enhance the quality of life in Siloam Springs.
