North Hollywood Division Goals

Policing Philosophy and Goals for North Hollywood Community

North Hollywood Community Police Station is committed to serving the community while protecting the rights of all persons. Consistent with this commitment, the Vision, Motto, and Core Values are actively embraced and utilized for decision making.

The North Hollywood Area of the Los Angeles Police Department is committed to bringing the Department’s Vision to life. It is the Vision of the Los Angeles Police Department to, as closely as possible, achieve a City free from crime and public disorder. To accomplish this, North Hollywood embraces the motto of "To Protect and To Serve."

The motto, "To Protect and To Serve," states the essential purpose of the Los Angeles Police Department. North Hollywood protects the right of all persons within its jurisdiction to be free from criminal attack, to be secure in their possessions, and to live in peace. The Department serves the people by performing the law enforcement function in a professional manner, and it is to these people that the Department and each employee working out of North Hollywood is ultimately responsible.

The Core Values are the quintessential components of our Philosophy. They are: Service to our Communities, Reverence for the Law, Commitment to Leadership, Integrity in all We Say and Do, Respect for People, and Quality Through Continuous Improvement.

It is expected that faithful adherence to these ideals and the Department Core Values will result in a distinct amelioration of crime and blight; and will reduce the incidence and fear of violent crime.
