The mission of the Southeastern Louisiana University Police Department is to serve, educate, and protect the campus community through community collaboration, problem recognition, problem resolution and police action.
THE CORE VALUES
A firm adherence to moral principles
Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is watching. It is consistency between values and actions, and holding ourselves to a higher standard.
Faithfulness or devotion
Loyalty is a commitment to this department, to SLU, and to the community at large. We do not stand idly by as anyone attempts to harm any of the above nor do we act in opposition to the mission or goals of the above.
The ability to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation
We are courageous not just physically in the face of hardship, pain, or other threats; but also morally in our ability to act rightly where unpopular or where others cannot or will not act.
The behavioral embodiment of our community and our professional expectations
We recognize that we represent ourselves, our department, our university, and our profession. We carry ourselves in a manner positively representing all of the above.
The ability to change or bend as dynamic situations or community needs dictate
We recognize that policing an institution of higher learning often calls upon officers to be many things to many people. We accept our role willingly and strive to serve the community to the best of our ability, regardless of circumstances.
Creating a culture of openness and inclusion that values diversity in people and ideas
We acknowledge and embrace the diversity in the community we serve and strive to ensure diversity is reflected in all levels of our organization.
