Full transcript

All members of UVM Police Services are guardians of the community. Our call is to serve and protect the most diverse community in the State of Vermont. As a progressive leader in Police Services, we provide a full array of public educational services, as well as a collaborative approach to defining and addressing community needs.

Our Commitment to Diversity

Police Services believes that diversity, the differences between people, exists as a driving force in our interactions with people and institutions in the University community. We recognize that our authority and, ultimately, our institutional existence is predicated upon the people in our community.

In order to provide the highest quality of police service, we must be committed to the recognition and reflection of that diversity and incorporate its realities into our strategic planning and our day-to-day operations. Moreover, Police Services is committed to the belief that there is an intrinsic worth in all people, an irreducible quality whose protection and benefit is the basis for police service. We believe that the recognition of diversity is no less than the recognition of this worth. A commitment to honor the rights and provide for the needs of all people equally is our expression of this recognition.
