Values Statement

These values are what make a Silver Grove Police Officer what he  is. They are simple, yet very important, and are the foundation upon which the Silver Grove Police Department stands to provide a professional service to all.

Honesty - the single most reliable mark of an officer's value. Honesty is dealing in a straightforward and open manner with all members of the public and the department.

Professionalism - Being professional means being punctual, courteous, prepared and well groomed. It also means having and showing respect for every person an officer encounters.

Loyalty - Loyalty encompasses many things. You must be loyal to the city, to the Silver Grove Police, and most importantly, to your peers.

Attention to Detail - If it's worth doing, it's worth doing thoroughly. Attention to detail is the mark of the professional.

Adaptability - Officers must maintain flexibility with a high degree of performance. An officer's job is never the same from one day to the next. He or she must be able to make changes and still perform the job to the highest degree.

Courage - Officers must have the strength to challenge adversity when faced with it in their daily routine. Mental and physical preparedness are essential to handle the challenges of the job.
