UCPD's Strategic Plan
A Message from the Chief
On behalf of the entire Union City Police Department, I welcome you to our website. It is my honor and privilege to serve as chief of police and to lead the dedicated men and women who work tirelessly to provide a safe and secure environment for everyone in Union City. Our department is committed to embodying the highest ethical and professional standards, and prides itself on the quality of law enforcement services it provides to the Union City community. Our diverse and talented workforce of sworn and civilian employees is committed to four principles of excellence:
- COMMUNITY: Being steadfast in maintaining a solid, trust-based relationship with all who live, work, play, and visit in Union City.
- OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY: Staying committed to being efficient stewards of our resources while consistently striving to employ best practices in operational strategies and leadership.
- PROFESSIONALISM: Modeling exceptional professionalism in the way we deliver services and comport our policing practices, while being ambassadors of our organizational mission, vision, and values.
- PRIDE: Celebrating our organizational successes and accomplishments, with humility, as a means to inspire new successes; honoring our oath of duty, with empathy and compassion, as a means to embrace honor and integrity.
We subscribe to these principles in everything we do, recognizing that every contact we make in the course of our work is an opportunity to model our core values. In essence, we believe every contact counts.
Thank you for your interest in the Union City Police Department and the services we provide. I invite you to browse this site to acquaint yourself with our organization, our mission, and our commitment to the Union City community. I speak for all the men and women of this fine law enforcement agency in saying we are proud to serve you with our best effort each and every day, and we appreciate the support and trust you invest in us to keep Union City safe.
