The Village of Grosse Pointe Shores Department of Public Safety
The core values of the Village of Grosse Pointe Shores Department of Public Safety are:
Integrity, the adherence to moral and ethical principles and the consistency of honest and dedicated actions, is our standard. We strive to earn the trust and respect of those whom we serve and work with. We do what is right at all times because it is the right thing to do.
All members of the Grosse Pointe Shores Department of Public Safety will conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with professional standards for performance, both on duty and off duty. These standards include adherence to our mission statement and other core values. We perform or roles ethically and with integrity as we represent the Grosse Pointe Shores Department of Public Safety, regardless of the circumstance. We hold each other and ourselves accountable to these standards.
We value all who demonstrate self-motivation, dedication, and pride in their work and performance, along with the strength to adhere to what is right in all instances and actions.
We will remain courageous in our actions. We recognize that there are two types of courage, physical and moral. Physical courage is recognizing danger to oneself or to others but persisting in our duty regardless. Moral courage is the adherence to principle, integrity, and dedication, no matter how easy it may be to otherwise. It is putting character ahead of expediency and putting what is right ahead of what may be popular.
Respect means that we treat each other and the community we serve as would like to be treated, with compassion and dignity. Within the Public Safety Department, we strive to ensure all members are supported and empowered, regardless of rank or position. Outside of the Public Safety Department we strive to partner with the community we serve through transparency, accountability, and building mutual trust. We recognize that respect, as a value, must permeate every public safety action we undertake.
