Our Mission & Core Values

Group of OfficersMission Statement

We are committed to leading the community problem-solving efforts that improve the quality of life for all citizens of Fayetteville. We will work assertively with the community to address the underlying conditions that lead to crime and disorder.

Fayetteville District Policing Team

A system of providing police services, in partnership with the community, in order to identify neighborhood quality of life issues and provide appropriate response to those issues by police and other service providers.

Problem-Oriented Policing

A philosophy of police work based on the realization that the majority of police time is spent answering similar calls at the same locations. Officers analyze crime to determine the underlying cause of repeat calls for service, officers then use whatever resources are appropriate in and out of the department, to solve or better control the problem.


CompStat is a community problem solving process that serves as an accountability tool for operational commanders.  It provides departmental leaders with a constant, visual snapshot of the tactical and strategic crime fighting efforts of the investigative and district commands. CompStat offers a dynamic approach to crime reduction, quality of life improvement, and personnel and resource management, whereby ranking police department leaders identify spikes in crimes using comparative statistics and address those spikes. CompStat includes four generally recognized components: timely and accurate information or intelligence, rapid deployment of resources, effective tactics, and follow-up.
