The Zion Police Department’s mission is to serve and protect.
To serve honorably, without judgment or bias, to work with and for all residents and to protect all life and property diligently.
Actions and activities that the department takes will prioritize the safety of citizens and officers alike. From the issuing/wearing of safety equipment to supervising police operations to minimize risk and reduce injury to citizens, officers and suspects.
Police officers are entrusted with authority by the citizens they serve and must always behave and act in a professional manner, regardless of the circumstances.
Working efficiently and effectively for the citizens we serve. Promptly responding to calls for service, diligently recording facts and following up on leads and working proactively to prevent crime.
Working collaboratively within the department and within the community to better address the needs of the department and the community. Strengthening existing relationships and building new relationships to better serve the community.
