Today’s society has decided that maintaining the peace and the good order within our community should be delegated to professional law enforcement officers.
Although society has delegated the keeping of peace and good order to professional police officers, it has not and must not relinquish its total control of this process. The final responsibility will always remain with the community itself.
The role of the professional law enforcement officer must always be to support community efforts and, when needed, to add to them but never supplant them.
The goal and the mission of the Village of Nassau Police Department is to provide the professional expertise and the leadership to the community for the good order and the peaceful co-existence of its citizens.
