It is the mission of the Willis Police Department to enhance the quality of life of all members of the community by:
Providing a safe and secure environment
Protecting the Constitutional rights of all people
Enforcing the laws
Exercising regulatory authority
Preserving the peace
Applying the highest standards of professionalism, integrity and accountability in partnership with the community.
To accomplish the mission, it is imperative that members of the Willis Police Department embrace and hold dear good character and ethical policing practices.

However, by adhering to the values of good character, ethical policing practices, training, knowledge and life experience, officers can make good decisions.
