RPD: Serving with P.R.I.D.E.

The slogan "Serving with Pride - Professionalism, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence" represents the commitment of the Rochester Police Department (RPD) to consistently provide excellent police services to the entire Rochester community. Our commitment requires every employee to strive for excellence, while demonstrating courtesy, professionalism and a responsibility of ethical duty. It is important to acknowledge that every community interaction has an impact on the reputation of each individual employee, as well as that of the RPD as a whole.

The citizens of Rochester and employees of the RPD have a common goal: To make the City of Rochester the safest mid-size city in America in which to work and raise a family. There is no doubt that we can attain this goal, but We must work together. There are many opportunities for members of this great community to become engaged with the RPD.

Together, we can accomplish great things!
