The fundamental mission of the Cumberland Police Department is to
protect life and property, enforce the law in a fair and impartial
manner, preserve the peace, order, and safety of the community we serve,
safeguard the constitutional guarantees, and provide other
police-related services as required by the community in a manner
consistent with the values of a free society.
To fulfill its mission, the Cumberland Police Department will strive to:
Identify, pursue, and apprehend offenders
Insure the safe and expeditious movement of vehicular traffic on public roadways
Interact with our citizens to resolve problems and improve the quality of community life
Maintain a proactive patrol attitude to reduce the opportunity to commit crime
Provide miscellaneous police services on a 24-hour basis

Although a society free from crime and disorder remains an unachievable
task, it is the responsibility of the Cumberland Police Department to
approach that vision by having its members develop a reputation for
fairness and integrity that earns the respect of all citizens.
In order to respond in a professional manner to the challenges set forth
in our mission, the Cumberland Police Department will create and
maintain a quality work and managerial environment that focuses on
agency goals and provides for career development for its personnel
through training, advancement, and reward for exemplary performance.
