Gonzales Police Department Mission

We are committed to excellence in providing effective high quality services to our community in a professional and courteous manner. All members of this department feel that to be effective in providing a sense of security, safety, and a quality of life that everyone in Gonzales can be proud of, we must go beyond traditional law enforcement duties. The Gonzales Police Department is responsible to enforce all Federal, State, and Local laws, as well as abide by the Constitution of the United States and the State of Louisiana.

In accomplishing this important mission, we are guided by the following principles:

We must be compassionate, courteous and patient, acting without fear, favoritism or prejudice to the rights of all. We need to be professional, calm, and restrained in the face of violence and apply only the force that is necessary to accomplish our lawful duty.
