The mission of the Tybee Island Police Department is to strengthen and maintain the social order of the community by providing professional law enforcement services, having the best training and resources for education, while remaining within prescribed ethical and constitutional limits. The Department will provide services which contribute to the preservation of life, the protection of property, and the general safety of the community.
The Department will work to prevent, detect and investigate criminal activity, to recover lost and stolen property, employ organized traffic control and to apprehend and prosecute suspected offenders all while following a very structured management system while constantly assessing our performance.
The Department will further provide community service under non-criminal circumstances such as natural or man made disasters and medical emergencies. The Department will actively solicit and encourage the contribution of all citizens to assist in the formulation of activities which accomplish these goals.
