Our Vision
 The Key West Police Departments envisions itself as a professional department guided by our values to make Key West a safe place to live, work and visit.
Our Mission
The mission of the Key West Police Department, in partnership with the community, is to provide effective and efficient police services.
Core Values


A comfortable and healthy work environment must first start with mutual respect among members of our Department. Likewise, a community that respects its police department and its members must first start with members of our Department always demonstrating understanding and sensitivity to all of those in our community with whom they come in contact.


Ethics and honesty are perhaps the most valuable traits a law enforcement officer can possess, an essential element in gaining the trust and confidence of the public.



It is important that every law enforcement officer be able to make objective and impartial decisions based on the law and the facts at hand. Just as important, is his ability to exercise discretion, always using fairness as his guide.



We must always strive to provide a positive and professional response to the needs our residents and visitors.
