Police Department

Mission Statement


The mission of the Welsh Police Department, in partnership with the community, is to protect life and property, to understand and serve the needs of the town's neighborhoods and to improve the quality of life building capacities to maintain order, resolve problems and apprehend criminals in a manner consistent with the law and reflective of shared community value.  A community free from crime and disorder, remains an achieved ideal.  Never the less consistent with the values of free society, achieving this ideal must be the primary goal of the men and women of the Welsh Police Department.  We strive to promote efficiency throughout the department, while recognizing each person our members come in contact with as an individual, and must not be subjected to impersonal treatment.  We wish to work with the members of the community without regard to race, color or beliefs.  The officers of the department are a part of the community, not a separate entity.  Training and ultimately professionalism are goals the Welsh Police Department will continue to achieve every day.  Every officer should and will remain committed to providing quality service and protection for the community and citizens of Welsh.
