Mohegan Tribal Police Headquarters

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the department is to protect life, safeguard property, and maintain order within carefully prescribed ethical and constitutional restrictions within the confines of the Mohegan Indian Reservation. Police services, policies and procedures will be implemented so that the Department operates within recognized COMMUNITY POLICING STANDARDS so as to maximize the efforts of department members in achieving the goals of the organization.

The overall goal of the Mohegan Tribe Police Department is to free the confines of the Reservation of the Mohegan Indian Tribe from crime and disorder. In doing so, it is the department’s role to enforce the law in a fair and impartial manner, recognizing both the statutory and judicial limitation of police authority and the constitutional rights of all persons. It is not the role of the department to legislate, to render legal judgment, or to punish.
