Mission & Vision

Vision

A Safe City That Is Good for Business, Good for People and Good for Life.

Mission

To advocate for and inspire a shared vision among Greensboro’s residents and our police department to make the city a safer place to live, work and visit.

 Five Areas of Support

  • Leadership training and development
  • Cutting-edge specialized equipment and technology
  • Officer safety, wellness and morale
  • Crime prevention/crime fighting
  • Community partnerships and advocacy

The Greensboro Police Department has authorized 673 sworn officers and another 110 non-sworn employees to protect the city.

Over 83% of the Greensboro Police Department budget is dedicated to salaries and benefits, leaving little for discretionary purchases like equipment and training.

Major Challenges

  • Crime prevention
  • Workforce development
  • Community quality of life
  • Budget and facilities
