We strive for no less than excellence in all we do.
- For every person, protection and service
- For every circumstance, fairness, respect, and understanding
- For every accomplishment, gratitude and opportunity
- For every endeavor, teamwork, and professionalism
- For every day, integrity, efficiency, and the Golden Rule (akm - 1996)
The Fountain Inn Police Department consist of 24 sworn/certified officers, 6 Communication Specialists and Administrative Staff. We are fortunate to have volunteers in policing (VIP's) and 5 Reserve Officers. The men and women who proudly serve this community are well trained and committed to excellence. We are continuously seeking ways to improve the service(s) we provide.
During 2010 we established and trained a 7 member Citizen's review Committee (CRC). This committee's creation was partially in response to a perception that officers were trageting certain groups of residents unfairly. In our pursuit of not only excellence but transparency, we were eager to possess a forum to demonstrate this perception as incorrect. The CRC's function was originally to review all complaints made against employees, but their duties were expanded to include their review of "Use of Force" incidents as well.
We offer a number of programs to the community free of charge. They include Citizen's Police Academy, Summer Camps for "At Risk" Children, Neighborhood Watch Programs, C.O.D.E., Community Service and Senior Watch. Not only are we able to offer these programs free, but also the monies used to pay for these valuable assets are the result of fund raising efforts and not tax dollars. We are proud that our programs have served as models for other Police Departments in SC and other States as well.
For detailed information on our programs or to volunteer to assist us in maintaining that our community as a model for others, call us at 864-862-4461 or send us an e-mail to our website at www.fountaininn.org. We also encourage you to contact us with any suggestions to improve our services. We are here "Protecting and Serving...You."
