Message from the Chief

Welcome to the Police Department section of the City of Duvall website. We appreciate your interest and continued support in our Department and the services we provide.

The mission of the Duvall Police Department is to serve all people with respect, fairness and compassion. We are committed to the prevention of crime and protection of life and property; the preservation of peace, order and safety; the enforcement of laws and ordinances; and the safeguarding of constitutional guarantees.

With increased community services as our foundation, we are driven by goals to enhance the quality of life, by conducting thorough investigations, seeking thoughtful solutions and fostering a sense of security in our community and its individuals. We nurture public trust by holding ourselves to the highest standards of performance and ethics.

Our first priority is and always will be to preserve the high quality of life and feeling of safety for our city's growing population. Members of the Duvall Police Department are committed to serve with professionalism, respect and compassion for our community. To optimize stewardship of police resources, the department balances sustainability with a firm and quick response to crime, problem solving through community partnerships and crime prevention.

Our members value diversity, effective learning, professional development and innovation. We take pride in what we do and measure our success by the satisfaction of our members and our community. To this end, the department continues to recruit, hire, train, support and retain qualified personnel as sworn and civilian members of a progressive law enforcement agency.

Our Police Department consists of two divisions. They are the Patrol or Operations Division and the Administrative or Services Division. Both have unique responsibilities and duties, yet they work in accord to provide our community with the best police services and responses we can offer.

I feel our community is well serve by the men and women in our Police Department. Consistently, our community enjoys quick response to service and a low crime rate. Most recently, our Police Department has worked very hard to build upon public trust; through openness and transparency. With the implementation of social media and through constant community contact, our Police Department and community has worked to solidify the partnerships necessary for continued success.

As you review our webpage, you will see that we offer a variety of specialized services for our community, and we work hard to provide necessary, available resources to help you. If you cannot locate a specific resource on our website, please contact us. Our staff is willing, able and available to help you 24 hours a day. Together, we will continue to make the City of Duvall a great place to Live, Work & Play.

Sincerely, 

Carey Hert
Police Chief
