It is the mission of the Cumberland Metropolitan Police Department to safeguard the lives and property of the community it proudly serves, to enforce the law fairly and equally to all citizens, to reduce the fear of crime and maintain peace and order while enhancing public trust through accountability, transparency, and proactive crime prevention.  Our mandate is to do so with honor, integrity, and the highest ethical standards to maintain community partnerships and public confidence.
In order to fulfill its mission, the Cumberland Metropolitan Police Department will strive to identify, pursue, and apprehend offenders, maintain a proactive patrol attitude in order to reduce the opportunity to commit crime, interact with the citizenry to resolve problems and improve the quality of community life, regulate non-criminal conduct, maintain order, provide miscellaneous police services on a 24 hour basis, and ensure the safe and expeditious movement of vehicular traffic on public roadways. Although a society free from crime and disorder remains an unachievable task, it is the responsibility of the Cumberland Metropolitan Police Department to approach that idea as closely as possible by having its members develop a reputation for fairness, civility, and integrity that wins the respect of all citizens.
