Morgan County Sheriff Department
ETHICS - We, as members of law enforcement, believe that personal and professional integrity is the foundation of public trust. Our conduct will always reflect a personal commitment to the highest ethical standards.
COMMUNITY - We believe in building a partnership with the community we serve to identify, analyze and respond to the underlying circumstances, which precipitate crime and social disorder. We approach problems by developing a response that relies on traditional police problem-solving methods. We recognize that traditional American community values are those on which our organizational values are based.
SERVICE - Service is what we provide. Our approach to service should be one of highest quality, promptness, courtesy, and understanding to the community we serve. Quality service is achieved only when an organization is receptive to new ideas, adaptable to change and continually seeking a better way to get the job done.
OPEN COMMUNICATION - We encourage open, honest communication within our department and with the public. We believe in a work environment that encourages innovation, flexibility and productivity with managers supporting and facilitating the process.
