This web site provides you with a variety of information on how the Police Department works and information on a number of community-based programs.
It is the mission of the Nevada Police Department to deliver productive quality services for all citizens of our community. Our agency is committed to continued process improvement. All department members are dedicated to helping citizens and families improve their neighborhood environment and improve the quality of life through Community Policing.
Preventing crime is our first operational priority. We understand that building, cultivating and maintaining the community’s trust is the key element in crime reduction in our City. We are committed to reducing crime in our neighborhoods by establishing close partnerships with our residents and business community.
I want to seek your input by encouraging our citizens to offer suggestions on how the members of the Nevada Police Department might better provide services in the future. Community Policing is not only a philosophy but an organizational strategy that promotes partnerships between people and their police. It is based on the premise that both police and the citizens must work together to identify, prioritize, and solve community problems.
I submit to you that the men and women of the Nevada Police Department will be diligent in our efforts to identify and arrest criminals, and help our citizens develop long-term solutions to community challenges.
Chief W. Graham Burnley
