Welcome to the Auburn, New York Police Department’s website, brought to you by the dedicated men and women who serve this community with dignity, integrity, and diligence on a daily basis. Our motto, “Expect Excellence” is not only a mindset that needs to be practiced and instilled at every level, it is also a standard that our community expects from our agency in the services that we deliver and provide.
Our city is on the cusp of a redevelopment boom with many exciting projects that are occurring throughout. Relative to a law enforcement perspective, violent crime rates continue to remain low and it is a wonderful time to live in and experience all that Auburn has to offer. In fact, in October of 2010, Forbes magazine ranked the City of Auburn #18 of the best small cities in America to raise a family. I believe that a part of this honor is due to the outstanding efforts of our dedicated police officers as well as members of our community that are committed to making Auburn a safe place to live.
The members of the police department take a great amount of pride in the job they perform. I am optimistic that as we move forward, the Auburn Police Department will continue to grow in our ability to serve this great city in which we live. We will accomplish this through continued training efforts and implementation of cutting edge technology in police services as well as engaging our citizens in an enhanced community-policing philosophy.
In closing, I would like to thank the men and women of the Auburn Police Department, both sworn and civilian for the tremendous efforts they put forth on a daily basis. We stand united in order to accomplish our most basic goal: To serve and protect our citizens and keep our city safe. With the support of our elected officials, and city management, we can continue to strive to improve our city.
Shawn I. Butler, Chief of Police
