The Buena Vista Police Department provides protective and informational services to the community. The community has long regarded the Buena Vista Police Department with respect due to its perception of the department's high level of professionalism. It is the goal of each individual department member to maintain this tradition by being fair, firm, and impartial as well as friendly and approachable.

Along with its virtue of respect for the people, the department values its mission to ceaselessly pursue criminals, suppress and prevent crime, apprehend offenders, maintain order, facilitate the safe movement of traffic, and otherwise serve the public.

When any person applies for assistance, advice or makes complaints/reports by telephone or in person, all pertinent information will be obtained in an efficient and courteous manner and will be properly and judiciously acted upon consistent with established departmental goals, objectives, policies, procedures, rules and regulations.

There Is No "I" in the Word Team!
