Police Department

Mission Statement

The Town of Marion Police Department is responsible for protecting constitutional guarantees and impartially enforcing the law. We believe that integrity is the basis of public trust and that honesty and equality in the delivery of police services is essential. We commit ourselves to upholding these values and to fostering cooperation and respect within our community. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life experienced by our residents, by providing police services in a spirit of shared responsibility with the public. This ethos is historically known as “consent policing”, and commonly expressed in our own day as “community oriented policing”.
