Central to our mission are values that guide us in making the "Right" decision and help us to contribute to the quality of life in Salamanca. In striving to make the "Right" decision we value.
Respect - All persons have the Right to be treated in a fair, dignified, courteous, and equitable manner. We take an active role in understanding and working within the great diversity of our community. Further, we identify special needs as related to cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic diversity and respond in an appropriate manner.
Integrity - Common Trust marks the basis of integrity. We hold ourselves to the highest of moral and ethical conduct.
Goal Oriented - By having clearly defined goals we maintain a forward progression of service to our community. Goals are the basis for a smooth and focused operation of an organization. We continue to evaluate and update our goals as they relate to the citizens of the community and the level of service that we provide to them.
Honesty - To live honorably, creditably, and virtuously make up the three precepts to a "Justinian" or just life. It can also be attributed to the way we execute our duties of protection and service.
Teamwork - The central element to a well working organization is teamwork. We fully embrace the building of partnership within our community and among ourselves. We understand that working together as a team the quality of life in Salamanca can be improved and maintained.
