patchMission Statement

The primary mission of the Rock Springs Police Department is to coordinate and lead the efforts with the community to preserve the public peace, protect the rights of persons and property, prevent crime and generally provide assistance to citizens in urgent situations. The department is responsible for the enforcement of all Federal Laws, Wyoming State Laws, and City ordinances within the boundaries of the City of Rock Springs.

The department must enforce the law in a fair and impartial manner, recognizing both the statutory and judicial limitations of police authority and constitutional rights of all persons. It is not the role of the department to legislate, render legal judgments or punish.

The department serves the people of Rock Springs by providing law enforcement service in a professional and courteous manner and it is to these people that the department is ultimately responsible.
