There is no higher calling than to protect the rights and constitutional freedoms of those served. An exacting and thorough adherence to the U.S. and Colorado Constitutions is critical to this primary purpose. Protecting constitutional guarantees is more important than the outcome of any single incident. Every employee, regardless of role or assignment is critical to this mission element and each must live up to the oath that has been taken.
There is no greater honor than to serve our citizens. Service in a manner that demonstrates vision and initiative, where each employee seeks to achieve the highest level of quality in all aspects of their work, is the organization’s goal. The example that each individual sets influences excellence in personal behavior and job performance, and it inspires others. Our positive engagement with our citizenry improves the quality of life in our communities.
By virtue of our professional roles, great authority has been granted to us. It is a sacred trust between us and those we serve. The manner in which we enforce laws and rules must demonstrate dignity, fairness and compassion, and it must be rooted in reasoned judgment. The rule of law is a foundational component and must be understood. Preserve the peace, to solve problems at their root and to enforce laws and rules with a measure of restraint and justice should always be the goal.
The strategic plan for accomplishing the mission of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office must begin with the core values which must be preserved by every member of the organization. Each must perform their job in a manner that supports our statutorily based mission. Those values are:
INTEGRITY - We are honest, forthright and courageous in all we do. We are accountable to the public and ourselves.
EXCELLENCE - Our tradition holds that we serve our communities with high standards through teamwork, innovation and leadership. Exceptional service is our hallmark.
RESPECT - We honor our oath of office and the people we serve. We wear our badge with dignity and restraint. We enforce the law with equality, compassion and respect for individual rights.
Our values must be fully understood, practiced, shared and vigorously defended. In doing so, we will preserve the integrity and tradition of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and the confidence that the public has in it. We are not only public servants. We are citizens of this community who are dedicated to an ideal - a vision. Whether one wears a badge or supports those who do, our vision is supported by our mission and our core values.
