MISSION & VISION

The mission of the Mauldin Police Department is to enhance the quality of life in the City of Mauldin by working cooperatively with the community to reduce the fear of crime and the occurrence of crime through joint crime prevention and reduction strategies.

The Mauldin Police Department’s vision is to become a model for excellence in the law enforcement profession, while always bearing in mind, that our ultimate responsibility is the protection of our community through a guardian mindset and the heart of a servant. All of our employees are expected to be leaders in initiating and maintaining positive relationships with members of our community. These community bonds will form a medium where public safety concerns can be anticipated and addressed.

The Mauldin Police Department is divided into three (3) major divisions and several subdivisions called units, teams, squads or sections. The major divisions consist of the Office of the Chief of Police (administrative), the Field Operations Division (patrol function), and the Support Division (detectives, school resource officers (SRO’s), communications, training, animal/codes enforcement, and reserve officers).

Daily workouts, tests, training, and evaluations assess a participant’s mental and physical endurance. Upon completion of the program, students are recognized before the Mauldin City Council for their achievements.
