Our mission is at the heart of what we do:

- We work together as one team to safeguard communities and neighbourhoods
- We are sustainable and resilient and provide a high quality service to the public
- We act in accordance with the national Code of Ethics and our Force standards of behaviour
To be the best rural, coastal and urban police service.
‘One team - innovating to be the best’
This means that we will deliver the best policing service we can and recognise the unique needs of each community within Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
We will listen to people and understand what is most important to them, and work with them to solve matters which concern them most.
Our officers and staff will be approachable and available to the public, and will continue to provide a visible presence within communities.
Our behaviour and ethics underpin everything we do and the service we provide:
Fairness and Respect
We provide our services with impartiality, civility and understanding
We act with a higher standard of trust and integrity than is generally expected of society because so much is expected of us
We have the courage to do what is right rather than what is easy
We know our business and deliver on promises made, meeting or exceeding expectations whenever possible
