Our Mission

The Perry Police Department's mission is to provide quality service in partnership with our community which promotes safe and secure neighborhoods.

Because of Perry’s size, officers frequently know the citizens they are assisting by name, either through the church, community, or family relationships. They strive for a grassroots approach, building trust with those they serve. As an organization, we are transparent in all of our interactions with the public.
