Our Vision

We'll work even more closely with partners to deliver excellent policing services for the county's residents, businesses and visitors. At all times, we'll strive to keep them safe, prevent them from becoming victims and reduce their fear of crime and anti-social behaviour.

Staffordshire Police's mission is: Keeping our communities safe and reassured.

Our Strategic Objectives

Day-in, day-out, when we are making operational and organisation decisions to keep people safe and reassured, our three strategic objectives will shape our thinking and approach.

  • Preventing crime and disorder
  • Providing outstanding service
  • Dealing with what matters to communities

Our Approach

Our values and leadership principles set out 'how' we are going to deliver our objectives.

The strategy and plan is underpinned by the force's core values of:

Honesty, impartiality, fairness and respect in all we do.

Our blueprint for successful leadership...

Leadership is critical to our continued success. This blueprint sets out our core leadership standards and expectations.

The starting point for our leaders is the force's core values. Leaders are expected to act in accordance with them at all times.

These are supported by our 'nine golden threads of leadership':

  • Put victims and communities at the heart of everything you do
  • Deliver positive outcomes for them
  • See policing as a vocation - public service before self service
  • Coach, motivate and inspire your teams to achieve and improve
  • Lead with enthusiasm and optimism - even when it's hard to
  • Be available and accessible to your staff - engage with them
  • Consult and involve staff - especially over change
  • Innovate. Think outside the box rather than just ticking it
  • Be an effective negotiator

This mission supports the delivery of Staffordshire Police's and Police and Crime Commissioner of Staffordshire's plan.
