[ARCHIVED] SPD Updates Mission and Values Statement

Skokie Police Station

The Skokie Police Department has completed a collaborative community review and update of its Mission and Values Statement, which sets a benchmark for organizational culture and guides members of the department in serving the Skokie community each and every day.

As part of the review process, which began in September 2022, individuals serving on the Village’s Public Safety and Human Relations Commissions, as well as Village trustees Khem Khoeun and Alison Pure Slovin, gathered input from members of the department and a broad range of community members and stakeholders, including students, parents and school administrators, Use of Force review group representatives, houses of worship, and Neighborhood Watch block captains. The review committee compiled and organized public and Skokie Police Department input over the course of several months and worked with the department to draft an updated statement, which was presented to the Village Board as part of the Fiscal Year 2024 Budget process this spring.


The Skokie Police Department’s updated mission statement is as follows: “The mission of the Skokie Police Department is to prevent crime, protect life and property, enforce the law, and preserve order, while protecting the rights of all people and doing so with the highest of ethical and professional standards.”


The department also adopted Life, Partnership, Excellence and Respect as its core values, setting the standards and expectations for how the Skokie Police Department goes about accomplishing its mission.

The new Mission and Values Statement replaces the department’s previous statement, updated in June 2018. It can be found on the department's Welcome page at, and was highlighted by department staff in a recent video.
