Mission Statement

Hinsdale Police Department

The Hinsdale Police Department is dedicated to providing the highest degree of law enforcement service to the community while maintaining the traditions of fairness, professionalism and integrity.

We must strive to accomplish this mission with each and every contact, regardless of the circumstances and conditions while remaining alert to the perils that are common to our line of work.

Police work is a demanding and stressful occupation. We as police officers are routinely asked to solve problems that go far beyond our training. As society evolves the demand for police services increase. Therefore as police officers we must ensure that our equipment, knowledge, and training has evolved so that we may carry out our tasks and in so doing endeavor to maintain a high standard.

It should be realized we are human, that we have faults and feelings and may be vulnerable at times. In that vein, we must be cautious yet optimistic, while being polite and professional in all our dealings.

We as members of the Hinsdale Police Department swear to uphold the Constitutions of these United States of America and the State of New Hampshire. We also commit to upholding the laws and ordinances of the United States of America, the State of New Hampshire, the County of Cheshire and the Town of Hinsdale. We further pledge to this community that we will continue to faithfully, impartially, and professionally provide justice and service.
