The primary mission of a law enforcement agency is to maintain social order within prescribed ethical and constitutional limits, while providing professional law enforcement services. To attain this, the Summerville Police Department enforces the law in a fair and impartial manner, recognizing both the statutory and judicial limitations of police authority and the constitutional rights of all persons. The Summerville Police Department recognizes that no law enforcement agency can operate at its maximum potential without supportive input from the citizens it serves. The Department actively solicits and encourages the cooperation of all citizens to reduce and limit the opportunities for crime and to facilitate the maximum use of resources.
