High Priority Performance Goal Initiative

It is the policy of the Office of Justice Services (OJS) to clearly state the role of the law enforcement agencies in the community, and to make all employees aware of the actions and attitudes expected of them so they can act without hesitation in accordance with OJS policy. Law Enforcement Rules and Regulations are contained in the OJS Handbook to emphasize their importance to the law enforcement mission, vision and role. All personnel are encouraged to review these directives at least once each year. In the absence of a policy statement specifically governing a particular type of action or behavior, all employees will be governed by and held accountable for the basic values and expectations stated in this directive. The purpose of the OJS handbook is to define the agency’s role, to state the values to which all personnel must adhere, and to form a foundation from which all other policies and procedures will follow.
