It is the mission of the Morristown Police Department to protect the rights of persons within the City of Morristown ;to be free from criminal attack, to be secure in their possessions, and to live in peace. Our role is to enforce the law in a fair and impartial manner, recognizing both the statutory and judicial limitations of police authority and the constitutional rights of all persons.It is my belief that the citizens of Morristown deserve to have an exemplary police agency.

We are able to accomplish this task by utilizing a diverse group of employees who are highly motivated, well trained, and committed to the highest ideals of the law enforcement profession.
