Commissioner's message

Commissioner Stevens

Welcome to the South Australia Police (SAPOL) website.

As Commissioner, I want to outline SAPOL's vision and values to you.

Successful policing requires the support and goodwill of the public, as much as it does the dedication and effort of each police officer and employee.

As a result of the high standard of service we have delivered over our long history, the people of South Australia have come to trust and rely on us.

You expect us to be there in times of personal or community emergencies. You want to travel safely on our roads and most importantly, you want to be part of a safe community, free from crime and disorder.

We must continue to deliver essential services in a respectful and professional manner. We will continue to engage with the community and communicate quickly and transparently with each other and the public. This is an important part of retaining community trust and confidence, and is the responsibility of every SAPOL employee.

Like other government agencies, police must maximise productivity and efficiency in times of budget challenges.

I am committed to working together in new and innovative ways, to build on our past achievements and maintain and protect the high regard the South Australian community has in police.

To achieve this, SAPOL is undergoing a program of restructure and renewal to ensure it can continue to provide the service needed and expected by the community well into the future.

Grant Stevens
Commissioner of Police
