Mission of the Middlebury Police Department:

As an active partner with our community, we are committed to improving our quality of life through through activities that reduce crime and disorder, improve the safety on our highways, and assist those in need.

Community Policing:

The policing philosophy in Middlebury is that of Community Oriented/Problem Solving Policing.  While officers have the traditional responsibilities of responding to emergency calls, crimes in progress, and calls for service, they each have a community policing zone they are responsible for.  This requires each officer to demonstrate a commitment to the town and their area, to provide leadership in their areas to encourage resident involvement in their own safety and prevention of crime, to demonstrate innovation and initiative in resolving problems that impact community order and safety.  This philosophy has allowed officers to develop and implement policing strategies which have a positive effect in their areas, allowing them to make a difference.  The patrol officers have much more authority in this regard than their counterparts in more traditional-oriented policing models.
