Our Mission Statement

The principal mission of the New Hanover Township Police Department is to preserve the rights of the citizens in our community. We achieve this mission by preventing and detecting crime, protecting persons and property, maintaining order in public places, and anticipating and responding to events that threaten public order and the preservation of life and property.

New Hanover Township Police Officers understand that in the execution of their duties they act not for themselves but for the good of the public. They shall respect and protect the right of individuals and perform their services with honesty, zeal, courage, discretion, fidelity, and sound judgment.

Our New Hanover Police Officers seek and preserve public confidence by demonstrating impartial service to law, and by offering service to all members of the public.

Our broad philosophy embraces a wholehearted determination to protect and support individual rights while at all times providing for the security of persons and property in the community. In meeting this objective, it is our duty to operate as a public service organization. We will, at all times, work in cooperation with community agencies and groups to promote understanding of and competence in our efforts in law enforcement.
