We Are the RPD - Respect, Professional, Dedicated


Embracing a philosophy of Policing in the Spirit of Service represents the Rochester Police Department’Spirit-of-Service-logos commitment to consistently provide excellent police services to all of the Rochester community. This commitment requires every employee to strive for excellence while demonstrating courtesy, professionalism and ethics. Every interaction with the community has an impact not only on each individual employee’s reputation, but on the reputation of the entire Rochester Police Department.  

By supporting this philosophy and postively engaging our community, particularly the younger population, we hope to establish and maintain strong relationships, now and in the future.
