Strategic priorities

SAPOL 2020

Our vision is to provide a visible, responsive police service for all South Australians.

Our key strategy is to be accessible, innovative and efficient in the use of our resources, and responsive in the delivery of our frontline services regardless of the circumstances.

Our commitment to this strategy will drive our business through our core programs of Public Safety, Crime & Criminal Justice Services and Road Safety.

There are five focus areas:

  • accepting personal responsibility for professionalism and leadership

  • acting with integrity, honesty, fairness, and impartiality for public accountability

  • collaborating and engaging for effective communication

  • understanding and meeting community needs

  • maintaining and inspiring public confidence.

These focus areas are underpinned by our core values:

  • service

  • integrity

  • courage

  • leadership

  • collaboration

  • respect.
