What is our purpose?
Department Influences
The Madeira Police Department operates under the City of Madeira Ordinances, a formal mission statement, and a set of rules and regulations as established by the department, in compliance with the Ohio Revised Code. Each of the above three sources influence and control all law enforcement activities within the City of Madeira, as it pertains to criminal and quasi-criminal behavior.

Our Mission
The mission for every member of the Madeira Police Department is to seek and find ways affirmatively to promote, preserve, and deliver a feeling of security, safety, and quality services to all members of the community and those individuals passing through the community.

This mission is a commitment to quality performance from all police department members. It is critical that all members understand, accept, and be aligned with the responsibilities established by this mission. It provides the foundations upon which all operational decisions and organizational directives will be based. Directives include regulations, operating instructions, policies, procedures, and practices.

This mission represents the commitment of this administration to the concepts of quality performance management. In other words, members are expected to work consistently in a quality manner in the daily performance of those duties, job responsibilities, and work tasks associated with this mission. Quality manner means that performance outcomes comply with the performance standards established for this agency and for each member. Examples of performance standards include the oath of office, code of ethics, agency rules and regulations, policies, procedures, directives, general, special, and supervisory orders, work productivity and performance behavior.

Each member of the department is required to accept the responsibility for the achievement of this mission and the concepts of quality service.
