Citizen Services Portal

The North Port Police Department is dedicated to delivering proactive and up-to-date law enforcement services to the community through an established partnership with its citizens. Each member of the department is committed to providing quality and professional services during each citizen contact. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our service to the community and have partnered with our current Public Safety Software vendor, ProPhoenix Corporation, to extend additional alternatives to the citizens of the community, that is our Citizen Services Portal. The portal provides crime mapping, allows citizens to register their alarms, and request house checks when they're away!

Register Your Cameras

Let's work together to fight crime! Register your security cameras with Connect North Port today to help identify area cameras in case of an incident. A public safety representative from the North Port Police Department will contact you via email if they need your assistance solving a crime near you. Camera registration takes less than one minute via our secure online portal. Registering your cameras does not allow the North Port Police Department access to your live video stream - it only enables public safety representatives to know a camera is present at your location and easily request video evidence should an incident occur.


The vision of the North Port Police Department is to be a Department committed to excellence, with quality of service to the community as a priority. The Department is a leader in the police service profession, with everyone utilizing a multi-philosophical policing approach in every enforcement task they undertake. We strive to partner with the community and work together to improve the overall quality of life that everyone can enjoy.

Every member of the organization is accountable for his or her actions and we are responsible to the community for all we do. Decisions are made based upon the mission, values and policies of the department, always mindful to do the right thing. The department values diversity and treats each other, and all members of the community, with dignity and respect. Members are committed to the prevention of crime and disorder and provide personalized police service tailored to the unique needs of our community.

Understanding that no community can be vibrant and prosper without public safety, we invite all citizens to help make this vision a reality and to ensure this vision drives decision-making in every facet of our daily lives.

We reaffirm our commitment to service and dedicate ourselves to the pursuit of excellence.


The mission of the North Port Police Department is to provide the community with the highest level of law enforcement and crime prevention possible and to:

Protect life and property.
Preserve the peace.
Prevent, reduce, and deter crime and the fear of crime.
Enforce the law fairly.
Protect individual rights; and,
To provide a safe and secure environment for all citizens.

In order to accomplish this mission, the Police Department will aggressively pursue crime prevention, crime suppression, investigative and community-oriented programs. Our mission includes the creation of partnerships within the community we serve to secure and promote safety for all residents and visitors.

Core Values

As we work toward our organizational mission on a daily basis, our primary core values set forth the foundation by which our decisions and actions are based and by which our organization is always guided.

Human Life

We value human life as our most precious resource. In all aspects of our operations, we place our highest priority on the protection of life. This belief is demonstrated in two ways. First, the allocation of resources and the response to demands for service must give top priority to those situations which threaten life. Second, even though society authorizes the police to use deadly force, the use of such force must not only be justified under law, but must be consistent with the philosophy of rational and humane social control.

Public Trust

We value the public’s trust. Citizens, having given up their right to enforce their rights, have invested in their police the highest level of trust. We, in turn, entered into a contractual arrangement with society to uphold that trust. We recognize the expectations of our citizens that we will abide by the Constitution and law, will not abuse our power, will not use our offices for personal or private gain and will carry out our duties with character and competency. The manner in which we treat our citizens, our conduct and actions, both individually and collectively are based upon the high value we place in the public’s trust.


We value our integrity. We understand that each of us represents not only our Department but also the law enforcement profession and the government. We are committed to uphold our positions of trust by maintaining the highest moral and ethical standards and demonstrated practices and policies forged by consideration of morally relevant reasons. We acknowledge and accept that our individual conduct, both on and off duty, must be beyond reproach. Our conduct is the same, even when no one is watching. We have the courage to uphold these principles at all times and are proud that they guide us in all we do.


We value professionalism. We are committed to professionalism in all aspects of our operations. Our role is to serve our citizens. As a professional organization, we are guided by the “Law Enforcement Code of Ethics”, and a dedication to treat all people with respect, fairness, and compassion while continually pursuing the highest levels of knowledge, skills, and expertise. We acknowledge that as a professional organization, we must police ourselves. We therefore subscribe and agree to maintain a system to promote the highest level of discipline among our members.


We recognize the value of individuality and treat all people with dignity. We cherish, defend and protect the rights, liberties and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution. We commit ourselves to treat all human beings with the utmost respect, compassion and concern. We value diversity and commit to an environment in which we recognize the unique skills, knowledge, abilities, and backgrounds of all people. We are consistent in our treatment of all persons.


Through our partnership with the public, we work together to achieve our goal to make our community a safe and inviting place. We value teamwork and commit to cooperative goal achievement through active collaboration and partnerships with the community and with one another. We value the efforts expended in partnering with citizens to identify and impact the true causes of problems in order to solve those problems for the betterment of ourselves, the department, and the community.


We value service and have a commitment to faithfully and selflessly perform our duties. Providing excellent quality service to the community is our primary duty. We have a commitment to prevent crime, reduce the fear of crime and enhance community wellbeing. Our service is responsive, effective, and dependable.


We value the quality of our members and their ability to do the right thing. We encourage our members to make decisions based on our vision, mission, values, and policies at the level closest to the problem.

We ask our members:

Is it right for the community?
Is it the right thing for the North Port Police Department?
Is it legal, ethical and moral?
Is it something you are willing to be accountable for?
Is it consistent with the department’s vision, mission, values and policies?

If the answer to all of these questions is "Yes" - just do it.
