The mission of the Norristown Police Department is to protect life and property; to understand and serve the needs of the borough's neighborhoods; and to improve the quality of life by maintaining order, recognizing and resolving community problems, and apprehending criminals.
The Norristown Police Department is committed to doing the right things for the right reasons. Our customer, the public we serve, will always be treated ethically. Equal rights are assured for everyone we come into contact with—for any reason. We take pride in working collectively to resolve the problems of citizens. The Department will constantly seek innovative methods to reach out and become a part of the community, rather than being apart from it. Police officers will aggressively pursue the awareness of the community's needs, and the perception of the police department held by citizens.
The Norristown Police Department is currently staffed by 68 sworn police officers. In 2010, the Norristown Police Department was dispatched on 46,119 calls for service. This equates to a simple average of 126 calls for service per day, every day.
