The mission of the Ontario Police Department is to protect life and property, solve neighborhood problems, and enhance the quality of life in our community. We do this by providing superior police services while fostering successful community partnerships.
Pride: Realizing law enforcement to be among the most-noble professions in the world and deriving personal and professional satisfaction from the effective performance of our duties.
Professionalism: It is not the job we do, it is how we do the job. Be engaging, considerate and resourceful in actions, image and conduct.
Integrity: It takes less effort to do right than it does to explain why we did wrong. The reputation of a hundred years can be undermined by the conduct of one.
Teamwork: Fulfilling relationships that instill pride, passion and commitment through communication and performance. Learn from the past and embrace the future through empowerment, respect and cooperation while seeking excellence.
