The Lafayette Police Department has come a long way in the last ten years in recognizing the needs of our community. We now know that law enforcement alone will not bring about an improved quality of life. It takes the involvement of the people in our community working with the police department to help remedy those problems that fester and eventually become serious. Through the dedicated involvement of the Police Department, and the people of Lafayette, we are working toward a community where all citizens are afforded the opportunity to enjoy an acceptable quality of life.
The mission of the Lafayette Police Department is to serve the community with a sense of courage, dedication, compassion and integrity. We will deliver professional police services efficiently and effectively. We will work to make a difference everyday through positive interaction with the citizens of Lafayette.
