Value Statement from the Souderton Borough Police Department

Values are the beliefs held by the Souderton Borough Police Department (SBPD) and its personnel. They guide the actions of individual employees and the policy decisions made by management. As such, values provide the SBPD with a sense of why it exists and what it wants to achieve. For employees, values indicate how they view the world, their constituents, and others with whom they have contact. In high performing organizations, values are the driving force behind behavior.

1. The protection of life and property.
2. Respect for all people.
