The Newport Police Department serves the "Town With Old Fashioned Courtesy"  with Integrity, Professionalism, Fairness, and Respect.  We strive to make the Newport Community a place where people can live, work and raise a family within a safe and caring community, where law enforcement is seen as professional, courteous, and progressive.  Our core values of Integrity, Professionalism, Fairness, Respect, and Teamwork are not just mere words, they are the very fiber that holds our organization together.  We realize that building, cultivating, and maintaining the community’s trust and respect is the key element in reducing crime in Newport.  Although technology is certainly an asset in today’s world, it can never replace the value of our citizens sharing information with our officers.


We invite you to interact with the community and our officers through the numerous volunteer programs we have within the Newport Police Department, such as the Community Emergency Response Team, Volunteers in Police Services, or Neighborhood Watch. We ask you to determine which program may be best suited for you and join us as we continue to strive toward our mission.



We, the members of the Newport Police Department, will vigorously and continually seek methods to reduce the opportunity for crime, accidents, and loss of individual property. We will improve the frequency of apprehension of those responsible for crime in our community through both the investigative process as well as the positive interaction with our neighbors. We will strive to ensure that Newport is a place where people can live, work, and raise a family within a safe and caring community, where law enforcement is seen as professional, courteous, and progressive.
